CORN BUNT­ING HOPE

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your View -

As al­ways, I greatly en­joyed Bo Be­olens’ col­umn in the Jan­uary is­sue (I’m a grumpy old birder, too). I’m a bit ashamed to ad­mit my wish bird, since I fig­ure every­one else has prob­a­bly seen them, but I still haven’t man­aged to con­nect with Corn Bunt­ing. I cer­tainly hope 2017 will be the year. I’d also like to put a plug in for Brussels as a city for one of David Lindo’s next Ur­ban Birder ar­ti­cles. The pres­ence of a lot of pro­tected green spa­ces and the Forêt de Soignes to the south of the city re­ally make for some ex­cit­ing bird­watch­ing; we even have Black and Mid­dle Spot­ted Wood­peck­ers, and Crested Tits breeding within the city lim­its!
