Tremough List (8th February)
Yet another walk around campus counting plant and animal species. This is a weekly trip my fellow students and I have to do for an end of term phenological report (tracking the progress of Spring by observing the changes and arrivals of flowering plants, migrant birds and other signs of breeding behaviour etc.) The usual species about including a Buzzard being mobbed by crows, a few Siskin (only heard unfortunately) and best of all, a male Firecrest in the eastern corner of the campus (only a few meters from where I had seen a male only last week! Maybe even the same bird?!
