Abnormal Plumage Survey takes off
Abnormal Plumage Survey takes off19 Dec 2011
There’s been an amazing response to our Abnormal Plumage Survey. The survey, through which birds with abnormal plumage characteristics in gardens are logged, was launched last week and has already accrued more than 400 records. If you have ever seen a bird with plumage abnormality in your garden – perhaps a Robin with a white ‘beard’ (pictured) or a Blue Tit with a black head – please let us know.
