Birds in the park – February 2020.

This morning we went for a stroll around the park with  Neil Anderson to see how many different species of birds we could spot. The final total: 31  and as  Neil put it “if we’d looked harder we could have found House Sparrows by some of the gardens + previous visits have seen Jay & Greenfinch”. The kingfishers in particular were a treat! As the river Brent improves we hope to see them far more often.
