Today I went to do the Winter Thrush Survey for November at Sutcliffe Park LNR and surrounding area.

After the amount of activity during the patch survey last Friday I had expected more but apart from a few Blackbirds and a flock of 12 Starlings there was little Thrush activity in the area. One interesting sighting was a Mute Swan on the lake at Sutcliffe Park, my first record of this species here. It seemed quite tame and was coming to the people feeding the ducks so I presume it has relocated from one of the nearby Parks perhaps Greenwich. maybe we will get one on the Tarn – my only patch record for this species being a fly-over this year.
