The month opened with an outstanding item when a Manx Shearwater visited Farmoor Reservoir on the afternoon and evening of 3rd. Our bird of the month was the first active and observable one of it's kind in Oxon for 10 years, the previous two occurring in the respective Septembers of and It seems unlikely that three individuals should occur locally in such quick succession but whether these were one and the same bird is unclear. Information anyone? September is when southbound Wryneck make their skulking and cryptic way through Great Britain and are a favoured patch target everywhere.

There were two Oxon records this month, the earlier of which was in the first week from a private garden in Wroxton near the border with Northants.

On 19th news of an unknown Otmoor notable leaked out via Facebook and this was in fact a second Wryneck. Found near the RSPB reserve's first viewing screen by a visitor in the early afternoon, the bird was sighted briefly by just two diligent observers twice more before dusk.

But otherwise it remained elusive and was not seen again after that date. An inevitable outcome of August's re-introduction of six juvenile White-tailed Eagle to the Isle of Wight will be many more "non-countable" records as the satellite tracked raptors range further afield. One of these adventured as far as Essex via central London soon after their release, and the first of the group to be noted in Oxon airspace was seen over Cholsey on 15th.

This amusing gem will be welcomed by book-buying bird-watchers, Central Park enthusiasts, and armchair nature lovers everywhere.

  7. Oct 08, Maryanne added it. After being downsized out of his corporate career, Levy found solace in New York City's Central Park, where he was astonished to encounter a red-winged blackbird that had learned to use humans as an easy source of food.

    Club George

    The bird was named George by a group of admirers whom Levy quickly joined, and in this chatty and sometimes witty book, the neophyte bird watcher tells of his Sundays and other days in the park with George, hand feeding him and studying his habits. Fascination with one bird led to attempts to get to know others, including a downy woodpecker and a mallard with a broken beak. He describes them and includes tips on bird identification books and binoculars. Levy's enthusiasm is appealing, but his discussion of hand feeding birds is problematic: watching wild birds is one thing; teaching them to trust humans is another—he mentions two incidents in which George's lack of fear of humans nearly resulted in disaster for the bird, but Levy never seriously addresses the question of whether the kind of interactions he implicitly encourages is in the best interest of wildlife.

    All rights reserved. George is a red-winged blackbird, resident of a small pond in New York's Central Park. Levy was involuntarily unemployed, and Central Park became his place to seek solace. His book grew out of his increasingly lengthy notes and journal keeping.
