Data Collection Day 6 – High Wood

The third of my dusk sampling occurred on Friday evening, this time in the High Wood area behind Bulmershe campus. It was warm to say the least, with temperatures of 26C making it far more enjoyable to collect data compared to the rain on monday! In total, another 19 species were recorded being present in the area, with 4 species not being seen by me before; including Chaffinch and Treecreeper. The full list in alphabetical order:

  • Blackbird (Turdus merula)

About Thomas Whitlock

I'm a third student at the University of Reading, currently studied for a degree in Zoology. I have a wide interest in biodiversity, most notably British wildlife. I have an especial interest in British mammals and birds. I hope to become a wildlife cameraman or photographer after I graduate, and I feel that blogging will be a key component of any future job in Zoology. This is my first blog, so please be kind!
