25th May

Regent’s Park

I had a wander around the lake to see how many Reed Warbler males were possibly holding territories. There were at least 6 around the main lake and although I didn’t hear it, there is a bird in the reed bed on the lake in Queen Mary’s Gardens. That reed bed was only constructed in 2012 and has taken along time to establish.

I have attached videos of Reed and Sedge Warblers singing just in case you are not always sure what bird is singing from the deep in the cover of a reed bed.

This Great spotted Woodpecker has a more healthy diet on his mind, a nearby peanut feeder.
