Regent's Park

Regent's Park

Grey Heron: a second pair look to have occupied another of our Heron nesting baskets.
Common Buzzard: one few through mid morning.
Peregrine: a male went in pursuit of a distant target.
Kestrel: what was possibly a migrating male flew through at a very high altitude.
Sparrowhawk: similar to the above bird a male headed north and kept going.
Swallow: 5 singles flew through:
Northern Wheatear: a male was on the cricket squares but kept on retreating to the tops of nearby trees when flushed.
Pied Flycatcher: the male was still present and favouring the area of trees just outside area 41. Keep to the short grass while watching, otherwise the bird will move into area 41 and be out of sight.
Sedge Warbler: three birds were in the reed beds near the boat house, 1 in area 2 and the others in area 5.
Willow Warbler: 4 birds were singing.

    There appears to be only 1 chick in the basket but the others might be crouched down.



    This Mallard looks to be a bit worried about his landing.



    This pair of Mandarins have taken a liking to the bird drinking hole in area 41.
