29th April

Not a quite a rush, but a few birds to look at. The only slight disappointment was not connecting with a flock of 9 Bar-tailed Godwits that were kindly reported flying in my direction having just flown over Wormwood scrubs. Thank you Dave.

Common Sandpiper: one was on area 8 for most of the morning occasionally popping across to lawn in The Holme.

House Martin: sixteen were over the lake.

Tree Pipit: one flew over.

Garden Warbler: one was in bushes next to the reeds in area 5.

Lesser Whitethroat: one sang briefly from trees just the grounds of The Holme by Long Bridge.

Jackdaw: four flew south at 8.30am.

Linnet: one flew over.


The young stimulate the parent into regurgitating some delicious food.

Eye to eye, well almost.

I needed a lot wide angled lens.



I think something was happening not to far away as the park was very quiet.
