19th January

Work in Regent’s Park has started to extend the area of reeds in area 2. Hopefully it will allow more Reed Warblers to breed.

Birds in Bushy Park

Green Sandpiper: one was flushed from the scrape in the Brewhouse Fields. At the moment the scrape is viewable from the Iron Bridge.

Little Egret: one flew from the same area earlier in the day.

Common Teal: 5 on a pool by the Longford River.

Redwing: 38 still present.

Fieldfare: 1 perched by the Iron Bridge.

Siskin: 30+ in the Woodland Garden.

Lesser Redpoll: one associating with the Siskins.

I wonder if you or one of the readers of the blog can help me.

The last couple of days in the early morning or once darkness has fallen a mystery bird has been calling in the vicinity of my house.

The call is a harsh yes quite deep and full 'koo core core, koo core core'.

It's quite loud and feels like it's a largish bird. I'm absolutely mystified as to what it is.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.

Well Rob, we will see. I am not sure how many people are following my blog at present.Updates have been very sparse,due to lack of birds and my recent job change.
