Only managed 1 Hour over Highgate today. But I did add 1 bird to my Highgate Common year list. It was a Lesser Black-backed Gull. Other birds were:- 2 Coal Tit, 3 Robins (fighting), 10 Chaffinch, 6 Blue Tit, 2 Carrion Crow, 2 Magpie, 3 Wood Pigeon, 2 Blackbird, 2 Dunnock. Plus a male Great Spotted Woodpecker (photo). Really missed a great photo opportunity with this Woodpecker, it was less than 2 metres away from me, but when i did turn my lens on it, it flew off.
Takes my year list to 34 bird species.
