Nonsuch Park 28th May 08
Another trip to Nonsuch. On arrival I saw a falcon fly overhead, which I first thought to be a Hobby (very brief, no bins) but I later re-found it perched and it was a Kestrel. Several Stock Doves were present and Green Woodpeckers were popping up all over the place. I spotted a Collared Dove in the gardens and it was singing. This is a site lifer and until now was my bogey bird for Nonsuch Park. A Nuthatch showed well in the gardens. There were many singing Blackcaps and a possible Garden Warbler singing but it wouldn't show to be certain. Only one Chiffchaff was heard today. At the ponds a Moorhen was heard and 2 drake 1 female Mallard flew up.
