Hi Peter,

Today I led the group that won the bid for a private tour to support the Linnaean Society. As you know, it really was a fantastic day, with so many birds in the park.
The north winds after many days of south winds freed up a lot of birds to continue on their migration and many ended up here!

We had 63 species including 20 species of warblers.

Highlights were Adult Bald Eagle flying by the music pagoda, a brilliant Bay-breasted Warbler as well as an even cooler very drab one, the male Hooded Warbler, low Yellow-throated Vireo, and lots of Palm, Yellow-rumped, Pine, Blackpoll, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Blue-headed Vireos, White-throated Sparrows, and other harbingers of the last weeks of fall migration.

Here's the list.
