Birds of Moseley Park
On January 26th we joined in with the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch in the Park. This annual event creates a snapshot of bird numbers across the UK, highlighting which species are faring well and which are struggling.
In the run-up to the big count, we met an RSPB volunteer who carries out a weekly birdwatch in the Park. Combining their information with ours, we have put together a list of every bird that has been spotted in Moseley Park over the last 12 months.
Here it is – all 47 species. Plus the odd feral pigeon!
Blackbird, Blackcap, Black-headed Gull, Blue Tit, Brambling, Bullfinch, Buzzard
Canada Goose, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch, Chiffchaff, Coal Tit, Coot, Cormorant
