Regent’s Park

Red Kite: one flew north over Primrose Hill at 12.35pm and was a lifer for Birdman-euston.

Common Teal: one flew over Long Bridge.

Kingfisher: yesterdays 2 birds were still present, though mobile. The best way to see them is to listen out for their call.

Spotted Flycatcher: two birds were in the goose pen area 32 this afternoon.

Common Redstart: the male was on the eastern side of Hawthorn Cottage.
