Anyhow, for my troubles I got a new personal high count of Pochard on Heronry, with 54 birds. Great ducks Pochard, with this many in the Park, surely I must get a garden fly-over one of these days. Heaps of activity in the Dell, Siskins and Chaffinches galore, and a male Kingfisher at the far west end of Heronry flew down into that bit you can't get to. See here for a lucky pic.
Big Garden Birdwatch this morning produced 28 species for my garden, not all of them countable as fly-overs not allowed. There go my two Great Black-backed Gulls then. Yep, two! Sensational! With a seemingly miniscule Herring Gull in tow.
