Wednesday 29th January 2020: Jodrell Bank Volunteers

Leaders were pleased to join the Jodrell Bank Arboretum volunteers to run a special Big Garden Birdwatch with them.
Things started really well with a whole host of hungry birds visiting the feeders by the potting shed – long-tailed tits, blue tits, coal tits and nuthatch. The team then went on a short walk around the Arboretum in search of additional species.Great views over the field were had of red legged partridge, carrion crow, mallard and a large flock of redwing.
Incredibly we got one of the best spots in the last 30 seconds of our session (all Big Garden Birdwatchers know these guys normally appear just after the hour of the birdwatch comes to an end!) – a tiny goldcrest, Britain’s smallest bird, flew into the branches above our heads. A fantastic way to end a really enjoyable session.
