Black Park Country Park - 8 February 2013

We went along for our monthly visit, expecting to have an extremely quiet session after so few birds seen and caught (3) on our January outing to the site. As it turned out we were absolutely right with a catch of just two retrapped Robins and a new Treecreeper. There were few finches about and other sightings comprised of a Pheasant, GreenWoodpecker and a few tits.

We were surprised to find that some birches lining the ditch had been taken out. Hopefully this will not be detrimental to the Willow Warblers that breed in the immediate vicinity.

This used to be a tree lined ditch. It'll be a while before we site a 60' along here again.

Treecreeper - Aged 4 (of course)

Clear skies bring frost and ice but very few birds.

Totals 1 (2) :
Robin - 0 (2)
Treecreeper - 1
