26th March

Peregrine Falcon: two males and a female were seen at 8.40am. The male from what was possibly a pair flew off at speed towards Camden Town. He was then seen chasing each another male towards Primrose Hill.

Blackcap: A male in area 29 and a female at the feeding station in area 14.

Chiffchaff: Five males singing around the park.

Goldcrest: Five males singing, in those areas that have Yew or coniferous trees.

Bar-headed Goose: Six birds dropped in at 7.55am. These birds return most years, from who knows where.

Hi Tony,
My female Lesser Spotted Woodpecker turned up today, after a gap of two weeks. Fed five times.
Also this morning woken at 4.30 by Tawny Owl hooting in the woods. Heard an extraordinary noise I've never heard before. On this website:
it is described as a warble. The clip called 'Warble (male & female)' is what I heard. Ever heard this in the Park?

Hi Debbie.

It sounds as if your in a very good part of London. I have heard part of the warble but I can't remember it lasting so long. Keep your ears open for the Lesser Spotted drumming, it must be nearby.
