Birding Hyde Park and St James Park

I went to London on Saturday to do some sightseeing. As expected I was early so I went to Hyde Park.

Lots of birds about and the “list” was:

  1. Great Crested Grebe
  2. Cormorant
  3. Grey Heron
  4. Mute Swan
  5. Greylag Goose
  6. Canada Goose
  7. Mallard
  8. Shoveler
  9. Pochard
  10. Tufted Duck
  11. Pheasant
  12. Moorhen
  13. Coot
  14. Black-Headed Gull
  15. Common Gull
  16. Lesser Black-Backed Gull
  17. Herring Gull
  18. Yellow-Legged Gull
  19. Feral Pigeon
  20. Wood Pigeon
  21. Collared Dove
  22. Ring-Necked Parakeet
  23. Great Spotted Woodpecker (4 in same tree!!)
  24. Wren
  25. Dunnock
  26. Robin
  27. Blackbird
  28. Mistle Thrush
  29. Blue Tit
  30. Great Tit
  31. Magpie
  32. Rook
  33. Carrion Crow
  34. Jackdaw
  35. Starling
  36. Chaffinch

disappointingly no House Sparrow’s. A few Grey Squirrels about.

St James added nothing to the day list. I can’t tick Red Crested Pochard when the lake had Emperor Goose, Bahama Pintail, Male Eider and Black Swan!
