On Thursday 12th February ORC staff and volunteers met at Elm Farm bright(ish) and early to take part in the GCWT 2015 Big Farmland Bird Count. Jo, Sally, Meg, Bob the Birder (Can he spot it?) and Ali counted 21 species of birds at Elm Farm, which is a similar number to last year. More unusual species included a greylag goose, and the most abundant, a flock of 15 redwings.
