Cassiobury Park


Under a lot of pressure today as I had my grade 7 cello exam at the WGSB.  As a result I wasn't focusing on the birds until after the exam.  Still not much of note though except for the usual flock of 20+ Black-headed Gulls on the WGSB playing field.  Thankfully, I finished at lunch which gave me time to walk down to the car park in Cassiobury park, the highlight being 3 Lesser Redpoll that came to feed in the alder trees in the car park around 13:30pm.  Also of note in the area was 1 Mistle Thrush, 1 Great Spotted woodpecker calling in the estate and the usual Ring-necked Parakeets calling near the Cha Cha cafe.


Decided to walk the dog (Theo) behind the RSSKL after coming back from school were a moderate passage totaling 83+ Fieldfare (all but 1 flying in a ESE direction).  Also of note were the growing numbers of 40+ Chaffinches in the first field behind the RSSKL, 2 Kestrels (1 being mobbed by a Carrion Crow), 1 Yellowhammer, 1 Pheasant and 58+ Black-headed Gulls going to roost in a SE direction (possibly at the Kings Langley Fisheries).
