11th August

Regent’s Park

Common migrants numbers are still fairly low, however if you are patient and in areas with suitable habitat you never know what might appear.

Spotted Flycatcher: one was in or around the Old Golf & Tennis School enclosure, area 39.

Reed Warbler: a family were in bushes in area 32.

Lesser Whiteththroat: a cracking fresh plumaged bird was also in area 39.

Common Whitethroat: one in area 39.

Garden Warbler: 3 in area 32.

Blackcap: 20+ in area 31, 32, 39 and 41.

Willow Warbler: ten birds moved between areas 31 and 32.

Chiffchaff: 15 in the same area as the Willow Warbler apart from a 3 or 4 in area 39.

It was funny how Blackcaps, the C.Whitethroat and even the Lesser were intrigued by the Spotted Flycatcher.

Hi Tony

Love the shots of the Lesser Whitethroat. Cracking Bird!
Your new camera seems to be working well!

Thanks for the kind comments, it is a little different to my other one. I hope to use it a lot when Sally and I go to Norfolk in 10 days.
