25th April

Little Owl: The male was showing well this morning on Cumberland Green, area 20.

Tawny Owl: The adult was again showing in the Leaf Yard Wood, area 29. Only seen when the Blackbirds and Jay’s drew my attention to it.

Common Swift: Seven birds flew west in a heavy shower at 8.30am.

House Martin: eight birds were over the lake.

Reed Warbler: One in reeds at the end of Hanover Island, area 2.

The other species are much as they have been over the past few days.

Tony,

Last Wednesday you had a buzzard over the Park at 11.35. At 12.12 I had one over me. Flying roughly SE to NW. Looked up as I heard crow mobbing noises.

Hi Debbie.

There is a good chance that the bird would have passed over or very close to the park if it was on that sort of heading. We could do with some decent passerines, there has been a shortage of late.
