14th October

DSC_6525

The park didn’t quite have the XFactor today, the skies were just a little to clear to make picking up passage birds difficult. They were up there somewhere, though I did find some between 7.00am and 8.00am.

Wood Pigeon: 200 flew west.

Meadow Pipit: 12 birds in ones and two’s, some looked to land but no sooner as they touch down they were flushed by dog walkers.

Pied Wagtail: 4 fly overs.

Grey Wagtail: 3 flew west.

Fieldfare: twelve birds in small groups flew in from the north.

Redwing: 126 flew in a roughly westerly direction in small flocks.

Blackbird: None of the 4 very high flying single birds couldn’t be turned in to Ring Ouzels.

Song Thrush: 8 birds flew through.

Starling: 60 flew west in 2 flocks.

Siskin: 50 birds in small flocks flew south.

Lesser Redpoll: 4 single birds passed through.

Goldfinch: 46 birds passed through.

Jackdaw: one was perched in an Ash tree in area 1.

Sparrowhawk: 2m and 1f were seen, the males being harassed by crows.

Kestrel: one was also chased by crows.

Chiffchaff: 3 were heard.
