Lister Park

Sunday 20th October a.m.
 Another dull start with full cloud cover but slowly brightening up at Lister Park with a start temperature of 8°C.At the Lake there were c 150 BH Gulls, 4 Commons, c100 Canadas, 4 Greylags, 31 Tufteds along with the usual Mallard, Moorhen and Coots.The Gulls then lifted and the flock of Feral Pigeons flew away, a look skyward gave the reason as a Sparrowhawk being harassed by a Carrion Crow flew overhead. Near the lake a tree full of berries produced 10 Redwing, my first of the Autumn and with them the surprise of a Blackcap tucking in to the berries.
 Elsewhere in the Park a mixed flock of birds had Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Great Tits, LT Tits and Goldcrest. Others seen were Collared Dove, Pied Wagtail, Jay, Robin and Wren.
