1st May

Three of the most vocal birds in area 24

A day off for some retail therapy, not for me but my wife. According to Dave life in the park was very quiet, with a couple of exceptions.

Common Buzzard:
One flew NW at 12.20pm mobbed by a Heron. It makes a change for the Heron, they are constantly mobbed by crows as they pass through territory after territory as they fly across the park.
Swallow. Four singles headed north.
Reed Warbler: The bird in the horseshoe shaped bed in area 2, shows extremely well.
Blackcap: There song seems to ring out from every dense shrubbery in the park.
Raven: A worker from the grounds maintenance firm reported seeing a very large corvid feeding on the ground in area 28. He said that it dwarfed the crows that were keeping a respectable distance from the bird. Even a small dog ran the in opposite direction.
