Bird Count in Richmond Park 29th April

A few of our members took part in the annual Richmond Park bird count, organised by the Friends of Richmond Park Bird Recording Group.
The total of 73 species was slightly up on 2016 (72) and 2015 (69).
Although no particularly rare or unexpected species were seen, sightings included hobby, whitethroat, lesser whitethroat, garden warbler, common tern, redstart and wheatear.
