27th April

Richmond Park

I checked on the Common Terns on Pen Ponds this morning, there were 3 pairs holding on to a nest site each. Also present was a Common Sandpiper which may have been the bird that I saw on Friday. There was a distinct lake of migrants, although I did hear Sedge Warbler and Common Whitethroat singing from the anglers enclosure.

A Black-headed Gull gave this pair of terns a hard time until eventually the male tern chased him off. Gulls are increasing using tern rafts which is bad news.

Regent’s Park

Not much to report except the presence of a Wood Warbler in or close to area 43. It was heard late yesterday and when looked for this morning was heard to call once but could not be located.
