Another successful walk in the park this morning; the total number of birds seen and heard was the same as last month - 17! One lucky participant saw a Siskin - a small finch which tends to be a winter visitor to these parts. Another highlight was a Long-Tailed Tit carrying nesting material - in this case a white feather - so spring cannot be far off!

The full list is as follows:

Blue Tit
Great Tit
Coal Tit
Long-tailed Tit
Greenfinch
Chaffinch
Goldfinch (heard)
Siskin
Blackbird
Starling
Robin
Wren
Carrion Crow
Herring Gull
Magpie
Collared Dove
Woodpigeon

Thanks to all who turned up - details of next month's walk to follow.

Many thanks Des,

I think I can now tell the difference between the call of a collared dove and a wood pigeon.
