Black Park Country Park - 4 January 2013

Our first session of the new year was to Black Park. We were hoping to get more birds than the last time, and we did! Sadly, our 50% increase resulted in a rise from 2 to 3 birds. They were all Goldcrests. We did see a flock of 30 or so Siskin, 7 Crossbill. a few Redpoll and a Red Kite. The cafe was full of last school holiday parent and their kids, so was given a miss but a quick check of the lake revelaed 24 Mandarins. Other than that, there wasn't much about, so no more sessions are planned until February.

Total - 3
