18th December

I do not mean to sound like a stuck record, but there has really been no change on what is present in the park. The only increase is that there are now 4 Lesser Redpolls, other than that the Water Rail, European Wigeon, Blackcap, Chiffchaff are all still present.

Good Luck Tony in your new position. We appreciate very much the results of your achievements in the Park and hope that what you have started will be sustained. You will be sorely missed by the many friends you have made over the years.
Best Wishes, Morg & Rose

I echo those sentiments exactly. Thank you for your interesting and informative work, the blog, and making the park a more diverse and wildlife friendly place. Wherever you go won't know how lucky they are to have you.

All the best,

Piers

Well done on your achievements in the Park. It is a shame that your role is seen as one of the more expendable ones, when it is actually very important, what with the loss of biodiversity that is taking place nationally and globally. I hope the Park management will continue to support and work on the improvements you've made, and good luck with everything.

Best of luck Tony. You've clearly made a massive contribution to the biodiversity of the park. Hopefully your knowledge, experience and passion for wildlife can be put to good use to make a difference at another site.

Tony, What you have achieved in Regent's in the past 34 years is tremendous and you are to be congratulated.
I have heard a whisper that you will be working in Richmond and wondered if you were working with Nigel Reeve.
I wish you well for the future.

I'm really sad to hear you will no longer be at Regent's Park, you've clearly done an amazing job over the years. Good luck with the future and thank you very much for the blog, which I check regularly and have found both entertaining and useful. I have you to thank for my first ever ring ouzel.

Kind regards
Rob Bell

Dear Tony
Sincere thanks for your hard work in keeping up this blog and for keeping us informed about wildlife on our doorstep. I have been astonished at the birds to be found right in the middle of London. Wishing you well in your new post and my very warm wishes for a happy and fulfilling year ahead.
Michael

Tony, so sorry that you are leaving your post. You will be sorely missed.
It seems so short sighted to make someone redundant who has so much experience. Please keep us updated with what you are doing. All the best, Janie

I am very grateful for all of your kind words. It has taken me quite a while to come to terms with this outcome. I will take the challenge on and hopefully have a bit of time to check out the bird life in these two parks and with luck find something decent. So thanks again and please contribute sightings to help me keep this blog a live and kicking.

Dear Tony,
I always love reading your blog but have never left a comment successfully.
I am shocked by your recent news and having read the thoughts of earlier writers, I concur except you have not left your post it has left you. Why do accountants see only cash flow without appreciating the bigger picture?
Thank you so much for opening our eyes to the natural wonders on our doorsteps. You have shown how vital London parks are for wildlife and long may your efforts remain.
I hope that we can still see you sometimes in Regent’s Park or maybe visit you at Richmond.
Meanwhile a very Happy New Year to you and a continuing thank you from Michael at West Hampstead / Nonthaburi, Thailand
