A quiet day bird-wise, with the cool wind and low temperature possibly suppressing bird activity. There were some interesting moments, though. The full list as follows:

Robin - just 1 or 2 seen and heard

Blue Tit - a few heard and seen

Great Tit - 3 or 4 chiming away and seen feeding

Coal Tit - 1 seen visiting a garden feeder and then entering a nest cavity in a house opposite the park. Luckily, a member of our group lives in he house in question so the bird's protection is assured!

Carrion Crow - rather thin on the ground today

Magpie - just a couple seen

Woodpigeon - a few

Feral Pigeon - a few flying around

Dunnock - 1 heard singing near the pond

Blackbird - several seen and heard

Mistle Thrush - 2 birds at least seen, although the nest found by Simon recently appeared to be abandoned

Lesser Black-backed Gull - a few drifting overhead. Distant views of 2 Herring Gulls failed to qualify for inclusion in this list

Chaffinch - at least 1 singing and 1 or 2 seen

Goldfinch - several birds

Greenfinch - several birds singing

Wren - 1 or 2 heard singing

House Sparrow - several seen near the pond and also observed collecting nesting material from a mysterious grassy structure halfway up a tree near the café!

Collared Dove - 1 observed by at least 1 member of the group.

Thanks to all who came along. As I'm away next month, the walk may be led by someone else - I will confirm at a later date.
