1st January 2015

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

First day of 2015, and also my first day Listing for Highgate Common. As always the first day of the year is always busy bird wise. I did manage a 80+ species of birds on the 1st of january, many moons ago. But I was not expecting numbers like that today! But must admit I was very pleased at my few hours over The Common. With the highlight being the Field north of the Meadow full of migrating Thrushes.

My 1st January List looked like this:-

3 Wood Pigeon, 1 Kestrel, 2 Magpie, 6 Great Tit, 8 Blue Tit, 1 Marsh Tit, 5 Chaffinch, 10+ Long-tailed Tit (photo), 1 Buzzard (over), 1 Green Woodpecker, 3 Black-headed Gull (over), 2 Coal Tit, 2 Blackbird, 2 Robin.

In the field north of the meadow:-

2 Mistle Thrush (Photo), 10+ Redwing (photo), 50+ Fieldfare (Photo)….

Long-tailed Tit…

By far my favourite Thrush…Distant – Fieldfare…


Have a Great New Years Day!!!
