Black Park Country Park, Buckinghamshire

I arrived at the park mid-afternoon in mild but rather dull conditions with many of the footpaths covered in soaked leaf litter. Reaching the area of heathland I noted a feeding party of Jay busily collecting and storing nuts in readiness of harder times ahead. A very mobile flock of Siskin was briefly observed before being flushed by a hunting Common Kestrel.
A full list of species observed as follows:-       
Great Crested Grebe (3), Great Cormorant (1), Grey Heron (1), Mute Swan (2), Greylag Goose (1), Canada Goose (2), Egyptian Goose (5), Mallard (18), Domestic Duck (9), Common Pochard (2), Common Moorhen (7), Eurasian Coot (19), Red Kite (1), Common Kestrel (1), Common Pheasant (1), Black-headed Gull (43), Herring Gull (1), Stock Dove (1), Woodpigeon, Ring-necked Parakeet (4), Great Spotted Woodpecker (2), Grey Wagtail (1), Wren, Dunnock, European Robin, Common Blackbird, Mistle Thrush (1), Goldcrest, Long-tailed Tit, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Common Treecreeper, Eurasian Nuthatch, Eurasian Jay (5), Common Magpie, Carrion Crow, Eurasian Siskin (15).
