Tower Bridge in awesome shocker

Great start to the year at Tower Bridge. I've already seen almost all the paesserines I picked up last year, and we seem to have a regular small flock of Goldfinches frequenting the same tree by the Tower of London. Fantastic.

Bird of the year so far? Patch tick:


It's a youngun but it's very much a Great Crested Grebe. Could even see the stripes fading from its head and neck. Expertly digibinned using a mobile phone and a pair of Minox compacts. Only the best for my readers. The year list for the site currently stands as follows:

  1. Mallard
  2. Great Crested Grebe
  3. Cormorant
  4. Coot
  5. Black-headed Gull
  6. Common Gull
  7. Lesser Black-backed Gull
  8. Herring Gull
  9. Rock Dove
  10. Woodpigeon
  11. Pied Wagtail
  12. Blackbird
  13. Blue Tit
  14. Great Tit
  15. Carrion Crow
  16. Starling
  17. House Sparrow
  18. Goldfinch
What other wonders might this patch hold before the year is out?

  1. By rock dove do you mean skanky pigeon? Bit optimistic perhaps :)
