19th July

The strange craft above has been hovering over area 3 for the past four days.

Bird news is still fairly hard to come by.

Little Owl:
Pictures below show what I think is this years only youngster. This was only the second sighting of a juvenile this year, with this bird being seen outside a nest box.
Egyptian Goose: Unfortunately a record count of 52 birds were present in the park today.
Yellow-legged Gull: A 3rd summer was on the lake this morning.
Reed Warbler: Several male birds have been heard singing from reed beds away from the ones that have already had breeding birds in them.
Chiffchaff: Birds were heard calling from areas 1 and 30.

Tree Bumble Bee: This species has only been present in the UK for about the last eight years.

Crab Spider with a small hover fly

Six-spot Burnet
Short-winged Conehead

Long-winged Conehead

The Wetland Pen: This area is continuing to develop into a wildlife rich area.

wetland pen is looking great. I havent been to Regents PArk for too long. I may have to pop along this weekend if the weather holds and the trains are running
