Hi Michael

Glad you enjoyed London and Hampstead Heath, a local birding spot for me, Bill Oddie and Sting to name a few.

You did very well in that limited time but it sounds as if habitat has improved at the central London parks. Or perhaps it is climate change: those poor House Sparrows!.

A lovely sight for me visiting HH (after 10+ years' absence) was kingfishers using a nesting bank I had helped create around 1985. Common Terns are another species that uses created nest sites - those rafts on some of the ponds.

By the way Red-crested Pochard would almost certainly have been a collection bird in my days.
