8th June

Regent’s Park

Great crested Grebe: The pair by Heron Island, area 8 were keeping their youngster close to the cover by the island. If they move to far of shore they could become easy targets for the gulls.

Herring/Lesser BB Gulls: at least 8 chicks can be seen wandering around the colony. Now that is something that I never thought I would say.

Common Tern: The pair were still present during the early part of the morning.

Stock Dove: 27 were feeding in my garden this afternoon.

Reed Warbler: 4 males were singing.

The female Kestrel collects a mouse from the male before returning to the nest box to feed their chicks.

It won’t be long before the first Great spotted Woodpecker juveniles will soon be appearing.

I still get a handful of House Sparrows from the Zoo visiting my garden but as yet they haven’t wanted to use the nestboxes.
