Hastings Autumn Bird Migration Survey 2012

We have reached that time of year again when we start recording the autumn bird migration movements from the areas in and around Hastings. The data is collated at the end of the survey, around mid October.
We would welcome your sightings which can be done from anywhere in the Borough, even just for half an hour each week or on a daily basis. All sightings however infrequent are invaluable.
