Last minute local birding

A couple of visits to Harlow Town Park to make sure the children don’t spend all day in front of the computer. Despite the location in the centre of a new town, and the large areas of close cropped grass there’s a few spaces for birds; notable totals were:

Green Woodpecker, GSW, Siskin c50, Grey Wagtail, Song Thrush 1, Blackbird 12, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Long-Tailed Tit 3, Cormorant 2, many Common Gulls going over with similar BH Gulls and 1 LBB Gull.

And a male Bullfinch in the garden this morning!

Finally a happy Xmas to everyone, and if I don’t post anything between now and next year (which is quite likely), best wishes for successful birding in 2008.
