Sam Twiddy, founder of the Cabot Tower Bird Study Group points to some pipits Sam Twiddy with David Lindo
On Sunday 2nd October, during the hot spell that the country experienced, Cabot Tower Bird Study Group was born. Situated at the pinnacle of Brandon Hill near the centre of Bristol, this 105 foot high Tower affords excellent views across the city and the nearby Avon Gorge.
Conditions were not perfect with clement weather, yet we saw good numbers of Meadow Pipit (over 100), Siskin, 'alba' Wagtail, Chaffinch plus movements of the local Ravens. Add to the mix a pair of Peregrine and a good morning was had by all.
This project promises to be very exciting and will run alongside T42BSG. For more information consult http://birdsoverbristol.wordpress.com/
