THORNE MOORS BIRDING BLOG 2022

This blog collectively covers the co-joined moors of Thorne, Goole, Crowle, Snaith & Cowick and Rawcliffe

Species in bold are notable, species in red are local, county or national rarities. Counts from different people or groups should not have their sightings added together as they may have independently seen many (but not all) same birds.

BLOGS FURTHER INFORMATION: can be found here concerning: DIRECTIONS ON SITE (PHOTO TOURS) Copyright, rare breeders policy, the Thorne Moors bird list, and latest notifications. Tom Lowe's sightings are all from Goole Fields and N end of moors. Ringing is at Top House Farm.
