Cassiobury Park + Love is in the Back Garden - 11.8.09

2 photos of the Love-bird.

At 8.40am whilst just about to start cutting the tennis courts a Hobby flew in hunting 2 small passerines but failed to catch either. It then drifted off towards the Met line station. Also present were 2 RN Parakeets and 7 Mistle Thrushes.

Later on in the day when at home watching TV, I heard a strange bird calling from the garden. On further inspection I noticed high in a Sycamore tree a lovely Love-Bird! I managed 2 shots before it flew. Not being much of a cage bird enthusiast my guess is that it was of the Peach-Faced variety but if anyone knows otherwise please let me know.
