The third recorded kill by a resident common buzzard this afternoon. This time an oystercatcher. Photo of crows and magpies in attendance. Previous victims have been a squirrel and a godwit species.
Other notable this winter is at least one nuthatch in the parkland trees. I have only recorded the occasional vagrant before here. The sightings tally nicely with Jeff Butcher’s records near Happy Mount Park and the golf course.

Ref Nuthatch. They were present through the breeding season in Happy Mount Park but we haven’t seen or heard one since about 17th October.
(Still have a reasonable tit flock, a bit fragmented, with long-tailed, great, blue and coal tits, goldcrest and treecreeper, sporadically present. Clearly Happy Mount Park is a centre for this flock but it roams widely. Grey wagtail still present, also.)
