This mornings on the 500 bus journey passing Hunton Bridge 1 Ring-necked Parakeet flew over the road just by the canal and 2 Canada Geese flew over the cassiobury estate (also seen from the bus). The walk through cassio. park included 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker (today was one of the few days I actually saw it) and there were at least 4 Herring Gulls circling the WBGS (early morning c.8:15). After school I went into the town centre, in the little fountain pond alone there were 11 Mallard (7♂,4♀) and 1 Moorhen, I soon got side tracked and decided to go for a big diversion up Orphanage Road leading to the large church. On the way 1 Lesser Black-backed Gull was resting on one of the spires by the church, 1 Grey Heron flew over and at least another 5 Herring Gulls were also present.
