WHERE TO WATCH?

Bird Watching (UK) - - Species Wryneck -

The Wry­neck can be seen in spring – usu­ally in May – but they are best looked for on au­tumn pas­sage in Au­gust and Septem­ber, par­tic­u­larly on the south and east coast, con­cen­trated around mi­gra­tion hotspots. A few pas­sage birds make it in­land and may even turn up in gar­dens across the coun­try. The species breeds from Scan­di­navia south to North Africa and across the whole sweep of Asia as far east as north­ern Ja­pan. Euro­pean birds win­ter in sub-sa­ha­ran Africa and Asi­atic birds in south­ern Asia.
