Birds of Streatham Common

By; Peter Newmark

Take a stroll around Streatham Common at any time of the year and with luck, and depending on your skills, you could see 15-20 different species of bird that reside there. Keep a list, as I do, of all the birds that you have ever seen on, or flying over, the Common and you could notch up over 60 species. Whether your interest in birds is serious or casual, April and May are the best months to be looking and listening out for them.
