Patch 6.30
Goosander 1
Teal 2
Tufted Duck 3
Barn Owl 2
Siskin 1 (also in in the garden)

Song Thrush 13 singing
last year I estimated a patch population 25 pairs
- this is a high figure given other counts in the Lancs Bird reports and published data of breeding densities

They should be fairly easy to survey - the song is loud, they sing together at dawn, and the position song post(s) is fairly stable


- on the other hand, beacuse the song is far carrying,  can I be sure that the bird I heard on my left is the same as that which I'm now hearing on my right, later in my walk.

- also did I double count when adding together counts from different part of the patch?

The best way to get an idea of the accuracy of my, last year's, count (and hopefully callibate the accuracy of my other species counts) is to map the
singing males.

Using an app with GPS make this fairly easy

Attached is my song thrush mapping from this morning - 13 singing males - the coverage is about 50% of the patch - I will fill in the missing parts of the patch subsequently
