2nd December

Not much to report, but still a couple of goodies still present.

Northern Pintail: The 1st winter drake was present again today.

European Wigeon: the pair are still present and have began to mix in with the collection wigeon in area 35, so a close check for both sets of primaries is called for. The birds do tend to look a little more nervous than the resident one’s.

Tawny Owl: a male was calling from area 40 at 11.30am.

Fieldfare: one flew over Primrose Hill.

Lesser Redpoll: one was feeding on Silver Birch cones in area 36.

Very nice flight image of the Pintail! Its amazing the difference some sun helps.

It was very bright and I only had a split second between it seeing me and it taking off like a rocket and disappearing behind some nearby vegetation.

2, possibly 3 Little Owls calling from the East side of the park yesterday evening at about 1700.

I do not get over that side much at this time of the year.

Cheers
