Only a few hard-core birdwatchers turned up today and the birds themselves played hard to get. The full list is as follows:

Chaffinch - a few flying over or seen in the trees

Greenfinch - 1 or 2 flying over

Goldfinch - a small group seen

Robin - several birds around, at least 1 seen well and vigorous song heard

Wren - 1 near the toilets. We don't always see or hear this species.

Coal Tit - 2 were seen well, feeding in the trees

Blue Tit - 4 or 5 seen

Great Tit - 2 or 3 seen or heard

Carrion Crow - a few

Magpie - plenty of birds throwing their weight around

Woodpigeon - several

Blackbird - 6 or 7 seen - back with a vengeance after a couple of months of scarcity in the park

Dunnock - at least 1 bird near the pond

Mistle Thrush - seen feeding on the grass


Thanks to those who turned up. Please note there will be no official bird walk in December but I'll be doing a circuit on 16th December at 10am and anyone wanting to tag along will be most welcome.
