I've blogged before about Travel Twitching but it's worth revisiting as today's 30 Days Wild project.
The idea behind travel twitching is unsurprisingly to birdwatch when travelling! I'm quite strict in what I consider as travel twitching, so if I'm walking with the sole purpose of birdwatching then it's not travel twitching whereas if I'm walking from A to B and I see birds on the way then it is travel twitching. Similarly if I'm standing at a bus stop and see birds it is travel twitching.
Anyway today I saw the following birds either from the bus stop or while I was on the bus or walking from A to B:
a dunnock hopping from branch to branch in the tree near the bus stop
swifts flying high above the bus stop
herring gull, carrion crow and woodpigeon sitting on various streetlights
three herring gulls fighting over a bread roll
a pied wagtail on a lawn
a lesser black backed gull on a chimney pot
lots of herring gulls and lesser black backed gulls flying around
I also heard a lot of house sparrows in one of the streets I walked down, though didn't see any of them.
The bird below is a blue tit, which I saw while walking through London Road Park on the way from one place to another.
