27th January

I only had time for a quick walk up to the Brewhouse Fields today.

Common Buzzard: What I take to be Mondays bird, was chased from the wood near the Brewhouse.

Redwing: It is hard to say how many are present as they are scattered over much of the western side of the park.

After being used to getting up-close and personal with the birds, this lot, with the exception of the Mallards are quite nervous.

A bit of warm sunshine triggers the drakes hormones and the females have to take flight

Nice shots as ever, like the Green Woodpecker, the colours standing out well.

Buzzards in bushy? Cant be an early migrant. Great photos as always.

Hi Marc

I am not being lucky enough to have a coastal patch, unless you count my Norfolk trips. I therefore have to grab what I can when I can. This new roll makes that even harder.

Cheers

Tony

It certainly isn't a passage bird, more likely a bird that is contemplating life on the edge of the capital.

Have you seen any Spanish Sparrows yet.
