Sorry for late entry. Wednesday U3A walk from Bull Beck along the river to Crook and back along the cycle track 09.30 to 12.30

Most interesting was a female redstart in a bush by the river near the Crook end. I guess migrant.

Otherwise the usual: 3 robins (2 juv) 4 wrens (1juv) 6 dunnocks, 3 swallows, many sand martins still visiting holes in the river bank, swifts - two singles and then a flock of 10+ spiralling up over Caton, 4 blackcaps (3 singing males, 1 female), 4 willow warblers, 6 blackbirds, 2 song thrush (both singing), a family of 8 long-tailed tits, 6 blue tits, 1 great tit, 3 chaffinch, 2 goldfinch, 1 greenfinch, 1 bullfinch, 3 house sparrow, 1 reed bunting (singing), 3 grey herons, 1 kingfisher (by the aqueduct), 1 oystercatcher over, 18 jackdaws, 7 crows including 2 mobbing 2 different buzzards, 1 little egret, 3 pied wagtail, 20+ mallard, 6 woodpigeon, 7 feral pigeon, 3 black-headed gulls, 1 lesser black-backed gull, 19 greylag derivative farmyard hybrids.
