Goodwick 30th October.

A round walk starting by the Rugby Club along the lane towards the Drim produced a good number of Blackbirds & a few Song Thrushes feeding on the berry laden bushes with 2 Swallows overhead a bit of a surprise. Up the hill then to the football pitch where 3 Jays were hopping about with some Magpies & then down the lane to join Goodwick Moor at the start of the Boardwalk. The Moor itself was very quiet except for a single Chiff calling. At the Flagpoles 17 Turnstones & 2 Ringed Plover with a handful of Herring & Black Headed Gulls.
Along the lane from the Rugby Pitch to the Drim quite a few Nestboxes & Bat Boxes have been put up recently by their very new look  ( although I haven't been along there for a while ), it will be interesting to see how successful the birdboxes are given the very public location & some to me seem to be very close to each other.
