Danson Park Records May 2014

John Turner’s records for his regular visits to Danson Park. We are always interested in receiving reports of sightings from locations in Bexley, either in report form such as John’s (Excel spreadsheet) or as postings direct to our Bexley Wildlife Facebook page.

 Interesting to note the large number of Swifts att he beginning of the month. These will probably have been feeding over the lake before pairing up at their nest locations. I often see Swifts in Sidcup first at Ruxley Gravel Pits before they are obvious in Birkbeck Road where there are nest sites.
