After a morning meeting in Blackheath, I went for a walk through the northern part of Greenwich Park visiting the Deer Enclosure, which occupies the northern edge of the park, east of the main gates.
The Deer Enclosure is an excellent spot for seeing wintering thrushes and a quick scan showed around 15 Redwing present along with some Blackbirds. This can be the best local spot for the rarest of our wintering thrushes, the Fieldfare but there are none to be seen today. This may be because the so-far mild winter has meant that not many have migrated this far south.
A good selection of woodland birds are also present – Blue and Great Tits, Robins and a few finches plus 4 species of Crow and a brief view of Goldcrest.
