Cheshire Rookeries

Following on from their successful breeding and winter atlas, Cheshire & Wirral Ornithological Society are undertakng a county wide Rookery survey. Most known Rookeries have been allocated a counter but, as with all things, some small sites may have been missed. If you see any Rookeries in the county assume nothing - take a grid reference, count the number of occupied nests, note the date and send it in. If you'd like to add more value note the size of the colony (metres long /wide), the number and type of tree involved and the surrounding habitat.
This time of year they are easy to spot - I have five sites this morning just driving part of the A49
