Took a leisurely walk in the park Friday morning. Saw a group of 4 greater spotted woodpeckers having a very noisy squabble - feathers flying - one drumming on a nesting box to the Northern end of the park (near the tennis school). A large flock of goldfinches (?12-15 birds)among the catkins of a group of poplars by the rugby pitch. Several Thrushes, a redwing in the duck enclosure and a couple of fieldfares in some Hawthorns again to the North of the park. Nice Green woodpecker, a couple more greater spotted woodpeckers and a goldcrest in a Yew at St John's Garden. Quite apart from lots of long tailed tits and the parakeets that are never mentioned!
BTW, your kite photos are magnifucent. Wish I could take time and go take a look myself...
best wishes

Hi Michael

Thanks for the info, those Great Spotted Woodpeckers have been going at it for a few days now. The Kites are always worth a look, there must be somewhere that can be reached by rail.
