19th June

Regent’s Park

Little Owl: one of the young was found on the ground this afternoon. It was felt that with so many people in the area putting the bird back there and then could possibly have jeopardised the birds security so it will be returned this evening.



Bushy Park


With all the Willow trees dropping their seed, it looked as if it was snowing.


It is that time of year again where people need to keep a tight hold on their dogs and steer clear of the deer who have been giving birth over the past few weeks.

Common Buzzard: one was again thermaling over the Brew House Fields.

Reed Warbler: two males were singing by the pools in the Brew House Fields. There was also the sound of young being fed deep in cover.



This Heron caught this Eel in the channel between the Leg of Mutton and Heron Ponds.

Though not what I really wanted to find even though I have spent hours looking for them. I came across my first cluster of Oak Processionary Moth caterpillars today.


These shed skins half way up a very large Turkey Oak meant I wasn’t on the right trail. By following the branch towards the end I eventually found this small cluster sleeping amongst the foliage.


They became very lively during the middle part of the day
