Well week 8 at the work patch was rather quiet with the only bird of note being a Goldcrest along with the usual Blue, Great, and Long Tailed Tits and the odd Treecreeper thrown in.
The end of the week Saturday the 26th saw us at Clumber Park [S80 3AZ] we hit it just right arriving at 10:45am before the build up of people. We decided on going around by the lake first seeing Tufted Duck, Mallard, Mute Swan, Canada Geese, Black Headed Gulls, Moorhen, Coot and a pair of Goosander. The woodland walk had us seeing plenty of Blue, Great and Long Tailed Tits with the odd Marsh Tit thrown in, we also had the sound/call of a Great Spotted Woodpecker. We saw plenty of Chaffinch and Greenfinch along with Robins, Blackbirds and a bird we overdosed on was Nuthatch they were everywhere we went. A Buzzard took us by surprise has it called overhead and glided on by, then we foundthe gold a pair of Hawfinch these were seen not by the chapel area but down by the gate towards the other woodland area were we also saw a Jay.
