Blencathra Field Centre

Cumbria England

   

12 -19 June 2021

Observers: F. Simpson

 

INTRODUCTION


 

This was my eighteenth trip on an undergraduate university field course at a Field Studies Council's centre. After the course was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid, it was great to get away again for the first time in 18 months. The centre has a small patch of mixed woodland which is surrounded by sheep-grazed meadows and a bracken-covered hillside with Meadow Pipit and Skylark, and Wheatear and Ring Ouzel on the higher hill ground. Slightly further afield are some nice patches of Sessile Oak woodland with Redstart and Tree Pipit, and upland streams with Dipper, Grey Wagtail and Goosander. Below is a list of bird species noted and some sound recordings.
