Earlswood all-day bird race

This Saturday (9th), birders at Earlswood will be taking part in an all-day bird race against 7 or 8 other teams of Warwickshire birders at their local patches. These are set to comprise Charlecote, Draycote Water, Farnborough Park, Ladywalk area, Morton Bagot, Salford Priors Gravel Pits and Newton. Each team will be spending all or part of the day trying to find as many bird species on their patch as they can. The hope is that this will encourage further bird recording in Warwickshire, and that perhaps a few rarities will be found on the day.

Birders and garden-watchers are more than welcome to contribute what they see at Earlswood on the day, or meet up with me. I'll be at the Malthouse Lane causeway hopefully from first light to around 9am, with maybe a group photo around 8am/8:30am. Birding will be concentrated at the lakes, Clowes Wood / New Fallings Coppice, and Springbrook Lane areas, and we'll be aiming for a total of around 60 species. My email address is

It's going to be a great day! :-)

Kind regards,
