21st June

Regent’s Park

I didn’t have time to do much in the way of birding in Regent’s Pk today as I was on call.

The only bird news I have to tell you is;

Shelduck: only 2 juveniles and both adults were on the lake at 6.10am.

Sedge Warbler: the male that had been in the reed bed in area 5 has moved to the reed bed in area 2. He is as vocal as ever and keeps on chasing after the pair of Reed Warblers that are feeding young in a nearby reed bed.

Reed Warbler: a pair are feeding young in the reed bed that was constructed and planted in Queen Mary’s Gardens in 2012. This species was one of the species they were hoping to attract, so is a new breeding species for QMG.

Great crested Grebe: the juveniles are beginning to expand their range, this one had followed a parent almost to the Boat House reed bed.
