At times it was very quiet this morning with seemingly little bird activity but we reached a respectable total in the end, helped by a fly-over Redpoll, a small finch with a distinctive buzzing call. The list in full:

Redpoll sp. - 1 flew over the Cuckoo's Nest bowling green

Goldfinch - present in small groups

Chaffinch - 1 or 2

Greenfinch - 2 or 3 birds believed to be this species high in the treetops with Goldfinches

Great Tit - 2 or 3

Blue Tit - heard briefly near the pond

Lesser Black-backed Gull - 1 or 2 drifting over

Woodpigeon - several seen

Collared Dove - at least 1 bird noted

Feral Pigeon - 3 or 4 seen

Robin - 4 or 5 birds heard singing or 'ticking'

Dunnock - 2 birds heard calling

Goldcrest - up to 2 birds seen near the pond

Blackbird - 1 or 2. They seem quite scarce in the park at present

Starling - 4 flew over

Magpie - a few

Carrion Crow - a few, including a plastic bag-wielding individual apparently

Jay - seen once or twice during the walk


Thanks to all who attended - see you next month.
