Blackbird - several seen, including rival males squabbling

Mistle Thrush - 2 or 3 seen

Blue Tit - several birds

Great Tit - a few

Long-tailed Tit - sightings included one apparently collecting nesting material

Coal Tit - 1 or 2

Goldcrest - 1 seen by some members of the party near the park-keeper's area

Goldfinch - several birds singing and showing well

Greenfinch - lots of song heard

Chaffinch - several birds singing and giving good views

Carrion Crow - several

Magpie - several

Jay - 2 birds heard

Robin - 1 or 2 but surprisingly quiet today 

Herring Gull - 1 or 2 drifting over

Blackcap - 1 in full song near the park-keeper's area

Dunnock - 1 heard singing at the end of the walk

House Sparrow - a couple of birds seen

Wren - 1 gave good views and song heard

Woodpigeon - lots
