This is my second post to this surfbirds so please be gentle with me eh
So then, here I am in Dorktown (somewhere in Warwickshire), and I live in the middle of a Victorian terrace of around 160 houses. Our street is one of a number all off a main road and just off the town centre. Now then ...
Upo until last month (late November I used to wlak our dog thorugh a rec not far from home but she died and now I have to wiat to walk our new puppy once he's had all his jabs. Anyway, that's bye the bye ...
The rec is fairly large and does have a number of birds but from what I saw last over the last 12 months or so they a few and far between. So my plan is go down there and sit in mt scooter for a couple of hours (if the local yobs don't fart about too much), and see what I can find. While walking the dog I was there for about 30 minutes so I didn't get to see much at all. The other thing is that it s a very popluar palce with kids and dog walkers so I'm not holding my breath for seeing too many birds.
But how large does a patch have to be before it is no longer a 'local' patch do you think? T'ther end of the street and over a couple of others there's the Coventry Canal with a very good disabled friendly footpath. The rec and the canal are about a mile apart so do you think they could be counted as one patch or two, daft question I know but this is the first time I've actually looked at 'doing' a local patch.
Have and a Happy New Yera to one and all
