22nd March

Tawny Owl: three owlets and 2 adults perched in a tree just inside the gates to St Johns Lodge, viewed from the Inner Circle or the Secret Garden.

Jackdaw: four flew through, one lingered by the lake.

These three Bar-headed Geese accompanied by a hybrid have returned for another summer. I wonder where they spend the winter?

Hi Tony, I saw what I'm pretty sure are your feral geese last tuesday in Chiswick on Duke's Meadows with a flock of Canadas. Three Bar-heads and what I put down as a White-front on relatively distant views. But it's almost certainly the same bird, had a a huge white conk on it's forehead!

Not exactly helpful as to where they spent the winter but I thought you might be interested anyway.

The hybrid goose looks very like the one that usually hangs out with the Bar-headed Geese at Kew
