16th September

Regent’s Park

Common Sandpiper: 18th day and still loving the sights and sounds of Regent’s Park.

Common Buzzard: seen being mobbed over the Brew House.

Hobby: 4 were over the Woodland Garden

Meadow Pipit: 4 flew west.

House Martin: 50+ near the Round Plantation, potential Hobby food.

Swallow: 30 also in the same area.

Cetti’s Warbler: the bird was singing 200 metres north of Dukes Head Passage.

Blackcap & Chiffchaff: small numbers were in the same area.

Richmond Park

European Wigeon: 5 were on Pen Ponds, near the reed bed.

It looks as if these Hobby’s are sheltering under this trees hat.

Brilliant shots again Tony! Whereabouts are the trees that the Hobbies were perched in? Are they in the woodland gardens? Or out in the open?

Thanks, Jack

They are but if you stand where I originally told you to stand you should see them well. If it is sunny tomorrow morning the light in that corner is really good, possibly to good on occasions. Stand aprox 100 metres from east of the Cottage mid-way between the woodland and a small copse of trees. I would join you but I am off for the next 2 days.
