27 June 2010

It's been a bit of a manic week with one thing and another so got a bit of catching up to do, so will start with the 24th, counted the Canada Geese which totalled 266 including 37 young and still the hybrid CanadaxGreylag, Great Crested Grebes still 2 with 2 young on the model boating lake and 16 on the main lake, the male Shoveler still present, 2 Grey Herons, 33 Mute Swans all on the main lake includes 1 cygnet, 6 Tufted Duck made up of 5 males and 1 female on the main lake, Chiffchaff total was 3 in the usual places, young Coal Tit by the model boating lake, a family of Blackcaps were seen, a single Great Spotted Woodpecker and single Willow Tit, the 4 Greylag Geese still present, Reed Warbler was singing at the top pool and a single Stock Dove at the old gas works with young Swallows and a single Whitethroat.

25 June like most of the last week was much the same as before, again young Swallows are at the old gas works, young of most species were all over the park, with Tits, Robins, Dunnock all with young, another count of the Canada Geese produced 265, Coal Tits seemed to have separated and were in several places around the park, Great Crested Grebes numbered 17 on both lakes, again 2 Grey Herons, 33 Mute Swans on the main lake and as usual 4 Greylag Geese, Tufted Duck numbers were up with 15 all on the main lake, the usual 3 Chiffchaffs were singing and 2 Blackcaps were heard, a single Willow Tit in the Nature Reserve and 2 Reed Warblers at the top pool, a single Whitethroat and Stock Dove at the old gas works, a Great Spotted Woodpecker was along the canal side of the main lake.
