20th February

No sign of the Smew today, it could be due to work going on in the areas that the bird favours.

Bushy Park

Lesser Spotted Woodpecker: a male was in Willows just south of the Canal Plantation.

Redwing: 50+ dotted about the western half of the park.

Fieldfare: 7 birds in the Woodland Gardens.

Siskin: 110 in Alders on the southern boundary of the Canal Plantation, shown in picture below.



Six out of at least 110 birds present today.

Lucky man....LSW extinct in our neck of the woods of North Lancashire.

I'm certain to become a daily visitor to your blog, I had no idea - an reckon many others won't have had either - that Regents Park was such a Mecca for birds.

Keep up the good work Tony.

Lovely photos and well done on catching a rare moment with a LSW.

I try to make life as easy as possible for those that are interested.

I haven't seen a LSW for a while, mind you I haven't tried. I remember back in the 70's and early 80's just bumping into them. Times have truly changed and unlikely to get much better.
