27th March

Regent’s Park

Maintenance work in my lodge was needed to today, which meant that I had to work from home. This gave me the chance to pop over to the park first thing and then later in the afternoon when I had to meet some volunteers with a work colleague. We are trying recruit volunteers to help us collect data on the flora and fauna of the Royal Parks particularly the central parks. As the meeting point was the Bandstand it gave me the chance to check on the recently hatched Heron chicks.

I didn’t hear or see any new migrants but maybe when the weather swings around to the south-east and warm air moves up from the Med we could be in luck.

A couple of hybrids were in town today, this bird as well as the aythya hybrid that looks slightly Lesser Scaup like.

The musket (male Sparrowhawk) was very vocal as he sat at the top of a tree in The Holme, area 9.
