Despite the wild wind and drizzle a few hardy souls turned up for this walk. There was a surprising amount of bird song despite the conditions and at least it was mild. The list in full:

Redwing - a count of 15 birds by one participant was very impressive

Starling - a mini-murmuration of 40 birds

Blackbird - a few

Dunnock - 1 or 2 heard

Blue Tit - seen by one of us

Great Tit - 1 by the bowling green

Long-tailed Tit - seen on 2 occasions

Coal Tit - heard and seen in a neighbouring garden

Chaffinch - just 2 or 3 seen

Goldfinch - several seen and heard

Greenfinch - 1 in full song

Carrion Crow - several around

Feral Pigeon - 1 or 2 near the play area

Woodpigeon - a few

Magpie - 2 or 3

Robin - a few seen and heard

Herring Gull - 1 or 2 drifting over

House Sparrow - just 1 male noted

Thanks to all who turned up. I'm away next month but the walk should still go ahead. Details to follow.
