Bird watching at Woodlands Farm

Woodlands Farm Trust on Shooters Hill has just published its Autumn 2013 bird report:

Most notable records were a Water Rail heard mid-September with a Snipe, a number of Hobbies and a Common Buzzard also seen that month. December brought Lesser Redpoll, Goldcrest, Blackcap, Fieldfare and Redwing a flock of about 20 Lapwing and a Sparrowhawk. In December there were large flocks of Black Headed Gulls and Woodpigeons and a Peregrine in early January.
