Birds in Battersea Park

Last week on two occasions I saw four redwing near Petworth Gate. Are they common winter visitors to the park?
  • Hi Paul,  you on a visit to south of the border ? !!     I can't answer your question but I know a man who probably can  lol     If Paul (MC) sees this his friend Mr Duckett  can most likely give you the answer so at least I can bump this up to the top again in the hope someone can help.

    Hello Hazel, What made you think I'm on a visit? I live near the park. I moved here recently from Sussex and I have been watching the bird population with interest. I didn't expect redwing.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Didn't realise you live in that area !   nice area :)   I've texted Paul so he may be able to give you an answer.   I loved my visits to the London Parks, so many birds to see, plenty going on.

    I think there's been a bit of confusion here. Hazy thought you were the Paul A who lives in Scotland who has been on this forum for many years. It's one of the quirks of this forum that it seems to allow people to have identical user names .... it creates no end of confusion.

    lol Tony,  thought I was going mad  !!    didn't realise that the site allows for two people with the same names, hence I was talking to Scottish Paul !!

    I didn't ask to be Paul A. I chose a name for posting, 'Bellman' but it seems to have been lost. If I can't go back to that how do I add a personal avatar to avoid confusion. I'd like to post about Battersea from time to time.
