30 June 2010

Last day of the month and hopefully over the coming weeks we will start to see some migration movement, things have been a bit slow over the last week or two, this morning was much the same as yesterday really and feel like I'm just repeating what I've said and seen over the last couple of weeks, but that's the joy of June, no movement or very little anyway and lots of n young birds hopping and calling from the water or trees.

It was another warm morning but with a bit more cloud coverage, breeze was light and from the west/northwest and temp was 18c, visit was from 06.10 - 08.15.

A couple of young Moorhens were being fed along the car park and boating lake, they looked about a day or two in age, the Great Crested Grebes were still on the boating lake with the two young which are starting to explore around the lake a bit, 11 Black-headed Gulls went through north after having a rest on the ramp and water, Mute Swans were 34 in number including the single cygnet, Tufted Ducks have started to increase slowly with a count of 25, 5 Lesser Black-backed Gulls went over also heading north, 3 Blackcaps were heard calling from the usual places and a family of young Greenfinches were on the sidings.
The 4 Greylag Geese are still with the Domestic flock on the main lake, a couple of Willow Tits were calling along the bottom of the nature reserve, 2 Treecreepers were at the top end near the top pool and a couple of Reed Warblers here as well, 3 Whitethroats on the old sewage works with a single Chiffchaff, a Shoveler was in the middle of the main lake and a Great Spotted Woodpecker was heard in the nature reserve,

Total species seen 37.
