Bird lovers read on

bird 1Over the long winter we saw lots of our common birds – Great Tits, Blue Tits, Sparrows, Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Blackbirds – at bird feeders in the park. Many small birds found the length of the cold spell very difficult. I had several reports of Redwings but not in the numbers we sometimes get.

Recently there was a reported sighting of a Ring Ouzel at the bowling green! Such a beautiful bird!  Also some Common Redstarts.

bird 2There was a report of a pair of Stock Doves, some redwings and the drumming Greater Spotted Woodpecker. I have seen the Little Owl by where the paths cross on the way to Herne Hill.  I have also heard another Owl or Big bird but have not yet seen it. There are several pairs of Nuthatches in the park and one of the nice things about the cold weather was seeing more of the usually shy Jays.

Please keep reporting any sightings to Susy Hogarth at:
