7th June

Regent’s Park

Another quiet day but it is June and bird life normally becomes pretty quiet by now, roll on late July and the first phylloscs.

this juvenile Reed Bunting is a mega in Regent’s and only the 3rd one that I have seen. We have had pairs on several occasions but quite often the eggs are predated on.

I only saw 1 male Sedge Warbler in area 5, the other male may have departed. Where he had been a Reed Warbler was collecting food. I did here a Sedge Warbler singing from inside the grounds of The Holme.

The nest where a chick was evicted in early April has at least two more chicks from the new pair. Dad arrives with breakfast.

The male from area 7 returned with a Perch only to find that his family had moved off to area 8 without telling him. In the end he did a circuit of area 7 before deciding that he would eat the Perch and then a few more Sticklebacks.

Where was the reed bunting you photographed? Is it there reliably these days?

It is in area 5, the reed bed east of the Boathouse.
