25 September 2010

Very different weather conditions today, very cold felt much colder than the 6c the clock was saying, there was a ground frost in places, bright sunshine no wind of note, visit from 07.00 - 09.00.

As I entered the park a Chiffchaff was calling in the nearby trees, in total 9 were seen during the morning all around the park with a couple singing, 2 Grey Herons flew over the boating lake and headed off north, 102 Tufted Ducks on the main lake and a single one on the boating lake, 2 Kingfishers were seen all around the boating and main lake, still just 5 Mute Swans remain and only 5 Great Crested Grebes were noted today, a single Treecreeper was in the trees along the nature reserve side of the main lake, 2 male Pochards on the main lake with the 3 Ruddy Ducks, on the top pool a Little Grebe along the edge of the reeds, on the old gas works 5 Geese Sp flew over high at a distance and 3 Jays, another Jay was seen on the old sewage works and one near the visitor centre, just 3 Mistle Thrushes were seen today, 6 Blackcaps were seen, 2 near the top pool and 4 on the sewage works, a few Meadow Pipits could be heard flying over high but couldn't be seen, a Willow Tit was on the sewage works and a Coal Tit along the canal side of the main lake.
