25th February


While undertaking some work on the Longford River near the Lady Elleanor Holles School I watched a flock of around 85 birds circling above the school for 4 minutes at 11.00am (not the birds in the photo). They may have been on the lookout for some tasty berries. I couldn’t see anything else to keep them circling for so long.

Regent’s Park:

Water Rail: the bird was in the feeding station at 9.20am.

Little Owl: one was calling from area 25 at 6.20am.

Waxwing: 18 were also seen over Queen Mary’s Gardens area 18 at 1.40pm.

Having been off work for a couple of days I had very little time to look for any birds today.

Teal: six were on the scrape viewable from Dukes Head Passage.

Fieldfare: 6 flew west.

Siskin: 8 flew west.
