Here’s what we spotted and heard on the Lock’s Common birdwalk on Saturday 11th May :-Starling, Herring gull, Song thrush (heard only), Jackdaw, Carrion crow, House sparrow, Rook, Lesser black backed gull, Blackbird (collecting worms in beak next to lifeguard building), Linnet, Wood pigeon, Whimbrel (found by Strinda who forgot her binoculars!), Rock pipit, Goldfinch, Meadow pipit, Magpie, Greenfinch, Whitethroat, Skylark, Swift, Chaffinch, Feral pigeon, Swallow, Blue tit (heard only), Sparrowhawk.


An enjoyable walk with 8 participants in testing conditions due to a fresh westerly wind. Bird of the day was the whimbrel which landed close by in rocks next to the beach but the adult male sparrowhawk swooping close to us near Malc’s Café was a close second.

Unfortunately no photos yet as the battery went in the camera, but as soon as we have some they will be posted so watch this space!
