5th January

Regent’s Park was covered in several centimetres of snow when I woke up this morning. I was hoping to see the continuing movement of winter thrushes and with luck some Lapwings. Although I wasn’t out that early the skies were very quiet with the odd thing passing over.

Curlew: one flew north at 10.40am.

Redwing: a flock of 75 flew north-east and a handful were feeding on Holly berries in area 27.

Hi Tony, 7 Lapwings heading low south-west over area 42 at 14:17hrs. An hour later at least 3 Siskins in the Alders in area 31 as well as a fly-over Sparrowhawk. A pair of Wigeon were on the main lake.

Thanks for that, at last someone else has kindly reported some bird info. I know that others have tried and not been able to leave a comment. Please keep trying, it is important if we want to keep the standard of central london premier site up.

You never know what might fly over when a cold spell sets in, though you would expect a bird like this to follow the Thames.
