BIRDS OF THE MALVERN AREA

(passage and migrant species)

Andrew Warr and Steve Whitehouse of the West Midlands Bird Club have provided the following additional information for those of you wanting to see the less common passage and migrant species in the area:

The best period to see passing migrants is from September through to mid-November. Mid-March and April produce smaller numbers of the same species that occur in autumn. From dawn to mid-morning gives the best results. Winds with an easterly element tend to increase the variety of birds.

A good place to see autumn migrants is from the saddle at the top of Happy Valley as early in the morning as possible. You should see various pipits, larks, thrushes and finches, mostly flying west into Herefordshire.

Below are some notes on specific migrant species:
