I started counting for a WeBS (Wetland Bird Survey) site at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton in January this year. The survey’s aim is to estimate a population of non-breeding waterbirds in the UK mainly during the winter. Unfortunately the site doesn’t have a wide range of species with just the common species being regular, but Renishaw Park where we ring with Geoff is also a vacant survey site so we may take that on in the future. I will post on this section if anything interesting turns up!
Please visit the BTO site for more info.
