Lee valley birdwatching and wildlife fair.

Weather sunny with high and thin clouds (sirrus?). On the M25 saw a Kestrel perched in a tree by the hard shoulder. Got to the fair just in time for one of the walks. Started with the farm walk : Dunnock, Falcon on pylon, Atonechat, Skylark, Reed Bunting, Pied Wagtail, Chaffinch, Sparrow, Collared Dove, Blackbird, Long tailed Tit, Rook, Crow. Then a look round the exhibition. The queue for Cornish pasties was long, still it gave me a chance to look for a few more ticks : Robin, and Chaffinch.
13:00 off on the wetland walk. Some people were ringing birds something I have never seen before, looks a but cruel! Now for the birds Tufted Dick, Canada Geese, Little Grebe, Mute Swan, Coutt, Gray Crested Grebe, Moorhen, Water Vole, Cormorant, Gadwall, Mallard, Greylag Geese, Shoveler, Starling, Grey Heron, Blue Tit, Great Tit.
