Annual Bird Information

This is an indicative list which gives a general outline and guide to what may be seen. For further reference I suggest the RSPB Bird books.

This is the month when the last of the over-wintering birds, ducks and geese depart, and the arrival of summer visitors from Africa arrive from the middle of the month onwards.
