Around town:

There was a Chiffchaff singing at Camley Street Natural Park (Kings Cross) early on Friday morning - not something you often hear in November in the middle of London. Any thoughts why this might be?! Several Fieldfare were near New Addington (Croydon) on 6th with 2 Kestrels and a Common Buzzard. There were two more Common Buzzards over Saltbox Hill (Biggin Hill Airfield) on the 8th.

Probable juvenile Common Buzzard (Buteo buteo) with heavy moult on primaries? Hutchinson's Bank nr New Addington, 6/11/12. Photo (PB)
