8th November

The identity of the mystery bird has been solved by I hope all of those who look at this site, It is a female Sardinian Warbler. Piers was the first person to workout the birds identity, so well done. If you would like to wander around the park one weekend morning let me know. The females mate would have been a much easier challenge. I will have to think of another challenge for everyone.

Lighter winds today with a overcast skies gave a few birds the chance to pass overhead.

Fieldfare: 14 headed west in two groups.
Redwing: 18 birds also headed west.
Linnet: 1 flew east.
Lesser Redpoll: 1 flew north.
Brambling: A female was feeding in an Oak tree with 25 Chaffinches in area 15. This was probably the bird that had been seen in Nursery Lodge on Monday.

Hi Tony,

I'm honoured...

This weekend would be good for me, early either Saturday or Sunday morning - otherwise the Christmas madness is looming a bit. Let me know when's good for you. I think you've got my email, or I'll keep an eye out here.
