Stuck in Dundee.....
This autumn will surely produce something new.
Popped down the park for the afternoon and at 1235 I heard a strange call I didn't recognise (which sounded a bit Pipit like) and turned round to see a bird flying over so I grabbed a few photos. The bird I photographed was actually the source of the Pipit-like call, and my best ever find at the park - a Hawfinch! Although there have been some around in Fife this week, lunchtime at the park is not when or where I'd expect to see one. Number 144 for the park list.
In addition to the Hawfinch there was also my first ever Brent Goose in the bay (1 was on the list from 2012 - reported in Birdwatching magazine monthly round-up - possibly a Bob McCurley sighting). A small flock of grey-ish looking Redpolls were also seen.
There was plenty to see - I saw just over 50 species and heard another 4 or so, putting the visit into the top 5 visits for me.
