After recent posts regarding Reserves etc wanting to reduce the numbers visiting, especially with a lot of localised lockdowns etc we have come up with an idea... Stay Safe & Local Starling Search.
If you know that there is a small roost but usually travel further afield to see Starlings, why not keep us updated with the ones on your doorstep?
If you do not know of any roosts within your town or immediate area then why not ask on your local Facebook pages or groups ? (like Spotted or local Wildlife groups)
We imagine that more reserves etc will come to us in the next few weeks asking us to not activate them so will be removing them from the Map just to avoid people heading out to them..
Another step we will make is removing the What3Words location from our submit Info form. This will also help with those that think you HAVE to stand at the exact spot mentioned although we do realise that the majority of people know that this is a rough area marker.
Here's hoping for a change in 2021 and that next winters season will be back to normal.
