Bird Walk report

QPARA Bird Walk 2015

Last Saturday 23rd May was the day for QPARA’s annual birdwalk around Queen’s Park and Paddington Cemetery. The weather was sunny, the company of nine good and the birds were singing as we set off from the cafe. Seeing a blue tit popping in and out of what must have been a nest site in the corner of the cafe roof made a good start. The Quiet Garden was not quiet when it came to bird song. It also produced a greenfinch – a species that has been scarce recently due to disease – a splendid song thrush and a flock of starlings, including many young. Indeed we saw a lot more starlings in similar flocks of around 20 than we have ever done on previous walks. 6 walkers made it round the Cemetery as well, two of whom spotted a goldfinch as they were leaving.
