This page is dedicated to wildlife sightings in the Royston area for this year, 2019. The most recent sightings are at the top, working backwards in time as you move further down the page - enjoy!


See my photos and hear my stories on the Royston Wildlife Blog! The blog went live in January 2015 and offers a more detailed account of my wildlife sightings, both on my "local patch" (separate post for each month) and in the rest of the UK (again a separate post for each month). Admire or ridicule my photos, help me to identify species or simply enjoy the read! The blog can be found at: roystonwildlife.blogspot.co.uk.

January 2019

I recorded 45 bird species on the 2nd on my first 'Local Patch' walk of 2019. There were no surprises, but it was great to see all five local tits (a marsh tit was seen in Reed village), large numbers of red kites (including one flying over my house), 11 grey partridges and a big flock of golden plover (I counted 148 from an image that I took of them in flight) at Greys Farm.
