"All Species" Counts to Date


Here is a bar chart obtained from the Trektellen Oxenhope database plotting day counts of all species counted against the date. You can see that all species counts have fallen off rapidly since the big thrush arrival of 18th, 19th and 20th October. It is however expected that this will not be "the end" with the big movement of Woodpigeons still to come together with more big starling and further thrush arrivals when time and conditions are right.

At Oxenhope this autumn we have had more coverage than ever before and appart from a possible unrecorded "big pipit" day in mid September I dont think, to date, much has been missed at all. For this we need to thank all of the faithful migration counters that have contributed, the names are there on the reports for all to see....

Many Thanks to all,
