18 September 2010

Cool 11c, slight northerly breeze, cloudy with sunny intervals visit from 06.40 - 08.45.

Mute Swans continue to drop slowly with just 7 seen, Tufted Ducks are up to 97 and the pair of Ruddy Ducks remain on the main lake, the only new bird in today is a single Wigeon, Nick was so excited at hearing about the Wigeon he got himself a bit stuck and needed a bit of help to get free!

1o Great Crested Grebes were on the main lake and boating lake with 4 being 1st year birds, Pied Wagtails have increased slowly this week with at least 10+ around the park and flying over, a couple of Bullfinches were near the sidings and a Kingfisher was flying between both lakes at regular intervals, about 7+ House Martins were seen flying around and about 5+ Swallows, 3 Grey Wagtails were also seen flying around, back on the main lake just a single male Pochard, there seems to have been a bit of a clear out on the Warbler front with only 5 Chiffchaffs around and 2 Blackcaps, a couple of Meadow Pipits were seen flying over with at least 5+ more heard flying over as well, lastly the Green Woodpecker was flushed along the old railway tracks on the gas works.

The below pictures are of the many fungus that are around at this time of year, I haven't got a clue what any of them are so if you can help then please let me know, cheers.
