The Sanctuary...

For the first time since I chased the Cedar Waxwing around Nottingham, back in 1996, I went birding during work today! This time I wasn’t after a “mega” like I was back then, I just fancied a bit of a breather from work.

In a 25 minute late lunch break, between 3:15PM and 3:40PM, I saw 10 species at The Sanctuary on Pride Park. The birds seen were... Little Grebe, Mallard, Moorhen, Coot, Black-headed Gull, Stock Dove, Wood Pigeon, Grey Wagtail, Magpie and Carrion Crow.

I had hoped that I may pick up the odd migrant bird, such as Sand Martin, or maybe a plover of some sort but it wasn’t to be. Maybe next time...

  1. That's a lot of birds in a short time.
    It's good you got to get away from that place for a while and relax.
