The weather was a fine spring day, some of the birds were more reminiscent of a winters day.
Skylark: 11m Skylarks.
Redwing: 220+; 160 along Chestnut Avenue and the rest on the western side of the park.
Common Redpoll: two were by Dukes Head Passage at the park end.
Lesser Redpoll: fourteen were in the Poplars by Dukes Head Passage.
Siskin: fourteen were in the Round Plantation.

Common Buzzard: one in the Brewhouse Meadow area still.
Lesser Spotted Woodpecker: a female flew into Round Plantation this morning. I didn’t hear any drumming though.
Meadow Pipit: 25 near Hawthorn Cottage.
Redwing: 60 around the park.
It is amazing how they manage to separate the fish from the weed.
