Woodpigeon – 1980s winter

Columba palumbus – YSGUTHAN – Breeding resident

The BTO winter atlas showed that Woodpigeons were present in the majority of 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square.  The darkest blue represents over 246 birds seen in a day.
