We had to work surprisingly hard to find the birds today, but eventually the birds found us - a mixed flock of tits and a Goldcrest provided some entertainment at the end of the walk. Full list as follows:

Woodpigeon - 1 or 2 flying around
Jay - 1 heard calling
Carrion Crow - 2 or 3
Magpie - several birds in and around the park
Wren - 1 or 2 birds heard, uttering their grating alarm call
Robin - 3 or 4 birds singing or calling
Dunnock - 2 or 3 including a very obliging individual near the pond
Goldfinch - 1 heard near the pond
Blackbird - 4 or 5 birds
House Sparrow - heard from surrounding houses
Pied Wagtail - 1 heard calling overhead might have been on migration
Skylark - another migrant heard calling overhead
Blue Tit - several heard and seen
Great Tit - 1 or 2 birds
Coal Tit - 1 giving good views
Long-tailed Tit - 1 or 2 in with the other tit species
Goldcrest - heard calling and seen briefly feeding high up in a conifer

The next walk is 21st November - the last in 2010!
