Established in 1993, the Friends of Mayow Park are people who are interested in and care about Mayow Park in the London Borough of Lewisham. Our members include dog walkers and joggers, parents,grandparents and carers with children, young people and retired people.
Twelve hardy folk came on the bird walk around Mayow Park, at 7am on a cold but dry Sunday 6th March 2011.
We had hardly begun the walk when we were confronted by two male blackbirds squabbling!
As we walked round we looked at possible nesting holes in the ancient oaks and found holes of different sizes to suit a range of tree nesting birds, the largest big enough for stock doves. Thank you to Paul for leading today's enjoyable walk. Thanks also to those who joined us.
Here is a list (in no particular order) of the birds seen:
Black headed gulls
Pair of mistle thrushes
Birds we heard:
Song Thrush Wren Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming
