Regent's Park pictorial from 12th October - 19th

Regent's Park

Things have quietened down considerably, Redwing's pass over most mornings in small number as do Siskin's and Chaffinches. A Tree Pipit flew SW  on the 17th our latest date for this species. Waterfowl numbers are still low but careful searching may turn up a couple of Teal.

    Adults are still feeding young in the nest, even though the juvs can fly strongly.

    There are still a few Little and Great crested Grebe's on the lake.

   Sparrowhawk's and Kestrel's are still hassled by Magpie's and Crow's in area 32.

   Mute Swan's are still squabbling on the main lake, thankfully nothing to serious yet!

   A pair of Peregrine's were over the park one afternoon.

    A 4cy Yellow-legged Gull was found by the kiddies boating pond on the 12th and is still 
    present in that area.

   Herring Gull taking a dive.

    A BH Gull does the same

    A female Stonechat was in the small triangular pen just NW of Longbridge in the 
    company of a Goldfinch  on the 19th. 

    Meadow Pipit
    Rook, the rarest common member of the corvid's to be seen in Central London.
