PLPT BIRD LIST

In addition to birds listed here, there are other species which can be seen in the area but do not feed, roost, breed or migrate along the canal through the Trust land.

Some very common birds, like House Sparrow, are listed as Resident yet not breeding because they nest in buildings, which may be close by but not on Trust land.

Key to abbreviations:

R = Resident – can be seen at any time of year; * – breeds here; S – summer visitor; W – winter visitor; M – occurs on migration; V – vagrant (just a few records)
