12th November

This has not been the best week for being out and about in the park. Today was the first when there really was anything worth mentioning.

Water Rail: Still only one bird present in area 2.

Redwing: At least fourteen flew through in small groups, a handful landed briefly before moving on.

Fieldfare: One was chuck chuck chucking away from the top of a tree in Queen Mary’s before heading off NW.

Lesser Redpoll: One flew west over the Nature Study Centre mid-morning.

Siskin: Two singles flew west.

The drake waterfowl are now beginning to look really smart.

The colour on the Bufflehead changes with the direction of the sunlight, which hasn’t been that often this week.
