Wimbledon Common 6th April 2017

After a few bits this morning in the sunshine at home, we went for a quick walk in Wimbledon common, since we have rarely been there at all.

Speckled Wood

At Wimbledon Common, there were plenty of Blackcap (somehow eluded the camera), 4 Chiffchaff, 3 pairs of Mandarin, 1 Sparrowhawk, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker, 3 Nuthatch (2 with a nest hole and actively adding to the insides,) 5+ Chaffinch and many more common birds. Butterflies consisted of 1 Speckled Wood, 2 Brimstone, 5 Peacock, 2 Small White.

I'm still awaiting three species which I'm desperate to see: Swift, Swallow or Willow Warbler. Next week perhaps...
