8th September

Regent’s Park

A fairly quiet day in the park so far with most of the birds present at the site of the Old Golf and Tennis School, area 39.

Common Sandpiper: a bird has been present on area 8 for the past 4 days, at times it can be hard to find.

Firecrest: a female was in with a mixed tit flock in the hedge that runs north of the enclosure. She was very elusive and I only saw her 3 times in 30 mins from 9.20am.

Garden Warbler: two were present in the enclosure.

Common Whitethroat: one was present here and another in the chat bush in area 36.

Blackcap: six birds in area 39.

Willow Warbler: one in a mixed tit flock.

Chiffchaff: 5 in the same flock and 4 in area 31.

Reed Warbler: one in the Wetland Pen, area 32.





there was no way that this really high flying bird had come from the park.

Thanks for the kind comments. I use a Nikon D300S with a 300mm f/4D with a 1.4 converter. This allows me to carry bins, scope and camera when doing serious birding.

Hello Mr Duckett;

I just arrive in London yesterday morning, will be staying at Hayes & Harlington for the next 2 months.

300m f/4D is an excellent lens and due to be replaced soon with the VR... a few of my birding and bird photography friends are now using the new 80-400mm VRII & D7100... fast focusing lens with effective VR...

I look forward to go to Regent's Park on weekends and will see how, since I'm not used to the weather yet and will be busy with my course on weekdays... nice Kestrel pics
