This year we recorded the birds seen in Butterfield Green as part of the RSPB’s BigBird Watch which took place on the weekend of Saturday 26th February.
The birds recorded were: Blackbirds, Robins, Sparrows, Blue tits, Long tailed tits, Great tits, Fiedfares, Wood pigeons, Feral Pigeons, Crows and Magpies . Song thrushes, Wrens, Goldfinches, Greater Spotted woodpeckers and Ring necked parakeets were recorded earlier in the year. This small park shows how a wide variety of birds can be found in Hackney, including the Fieldfares which have come all the way from Scandinavia this year to feed on the berries growing in our parks and on street trees.
