With the imminent arrival of summer migrants such as Swallows, House Martins & Swifts, it’s a good opportunity to remind everyone of birds that can be seen on Lincoln’s West Common.
These are all birds with reported sightings on the Bird-Survey system on long-leys.org. If you want to add to this sightings list you can do so by visiting Bird-Survey: Report Bird Sighting.
In 2020, the first House Martin on West Common was reported on 16 April, the first Swallow on 17 April. Swifts are usually a little later when they can be seen around Industrial Cottages on Long Leys Road.
Don’t forget that the photo competition “Capture the Wild Side of Long Leys” runs until 10 May 2021. See Photo Competition for more details.
