11th December

As things have been quiet lately and xmas is coming here is a little teaser that was photographed in the park.

I am sorry the site has been quiet for over a week, there really has been nothing to report. We have been trying, but the weather has been a little bit against us.

Peregrine Falcon: A probable male flew south over my house at 15.20pm.
Redwing: 18 birds flew NE in small groups.
Fieldfare: 7 birds flew NW.
Blackcap: 2 females were feeding on the Mediterranean border in Queen Mary's, area 14.
Tawny Owl: 1 screeching in area 2 at 6.20am.
Kestrel: The male was again displaying over area 25 this morning. It has been done this several times in recent days.
Greater Black-backed Gull: 3 birds flew east at 7.50am.
Grey Heron. Birds are taking up there nest sites and at times can be seen calling and displaying from their nests. If it stays relatively mild they could begin laying eggs by the end of the year.
Egyptian Goose: 18 birds fed on the grass by the lake early morning.
