Data Collection Day 20 – Pearmans Copse

Today was the final data collection point for my dissertation study, and it was the last dawn sample at Pearmans Copse by the M4. Unfortunately, the weather was a bit against me, with a few showers happening, but all in all 16 species were recorded or witnessed with the Long Tailed Tit not previously being recorded in the area. This gave a total of 21 bird species which were witnessed and recorded in my sample time.

The full alphabetical list is below:

  • Blackbird (Turdus merula)
  • Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla)
  • Blue Tit (Parus caeruleus)
  • Carrion Crow (Corvus corone corone)
  • Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs)
  • Chiffchaff (Phylloscopus collybita)
  • Dunnock (Prunella modularis)
  • Great Tit (Parus major)
  • Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)
  • Jay (Garrulua glandarius)
  • Long Tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)
  • Magpie (Pica pica)
  • Nuthatch (Sitta europaea)
  • Robin (Erithacus rubecula)
  • Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus)

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!
