As “Bird Champion”, even during Nick Bertrand's walk and talk yesterday, I was keeping an eye open for birdlife. I hoped to see a lot in two hours but, although I heard Carrion Crows, I only spotted three Magpies, two Woodpigeons and one Jay. I think 3 birds/hour is my worst ever.

While talking about a Maple tree, Nick spotted a hole in it which could have been created by a woodpecker (see photo).
In my own garden, which backs onto the park, I haven’t seen any House Sparrows at all for over a month
