25th September

A view in to area 25, the Pied Flycatcher can sometimes be seen around the Willow Tree by the path.


This was a much better day or rather early morning, though serval birds were seen later in the day.


Hobby:
What was possibly yesterday juvenile was again seen mid morning flying west.
Dunlin: Two birds flew high eastwards at 7.55am. This was only the fifth record of this species in the park.
Turtle Dove: The second record of the year for this our most attractive Dove, but only my first.
A juvenile flew strongly low east across the open spaces at 12.55pm.
Fieldfare: Three birds flew north-east with two Redwings on what was our first day of the autumn for the passage of continental thrushes.
Redwing: Ten birds flew through normally amongst Song Thrushes.
Song Thrush: Over fifty birds passed through, some did drop in, but soon decided better of it and carried on with their journey.
Northern Wheatear: Two birds were feeding by the Hub, area 28 at 8.20am, however they had gone by mid-day.
Meadow Pipit: At least thirty-five flew through.
Grey Wagtail: Four migrants flew west.
Pied Wagtail:Three passage birds flew high westwards.
Swallow: Over sixty birds headed east throughout the day.
House Martin: A flock of fifty or more were seen feeding above the park.
Pied Flycatcher: A week after the last bird, another bird was in the same group of trees in area 25.
Chiffchaff: Numbers had increased again to over eighteen birds.
Blackcap: One was in area 26.

OK, I know it isn't Regent's Park, but...
Greater Spotted Woodpecker seen in the trees by the canal at the back of Sainsbury's, as well as one sitting on a TV aerial on house by Camden Lock.

Your right it isn't Regent's Park. It just shows how well this species is doing at the moment.
