Well, we turned up but the birds didn't! We finished with one of the lowest bird counts ever, but luckily we had both fungi and invertebrate experts among our number so there was something else to look at. The complete list, for what it's worth:

Woodpigeon - very hard to find until the end of the walk when a few were seen

Feral Pigeon - several seen

Magpie - one or two

Crow - a couple

Jay - one near the pond

Wren - one heard near the children's play area

Blue Tit - one near the pond

Great Tit - one near the toilets

Goldfinch - three or four fly-over birds

Herring Gull - a couple drifting overhead

Pied Wagtail - heard several times

Starling - just one!

Blackbird - not sure it counts as it was heard half an hour after the walk finished!

Watch this space for details of a special December walk!

Yep, doesn't seem quite so bad as we thought!

Easily reached double figures then ( even without the 'dubious' blackbird).
