13 June 2011

A pretty quiet week while I've been at work, the only news in came from Nick which was the story of juvenile birds, on the 10th he had a male Reed Bunting feeding a youngster on the top pool, the 12th he had young Coal Tits, Whitethroat and Swallow.
On to today, it was a very cloudy morning with a bit of rain in the air, although it did brighten up during the visit, wind was quite strong and from the SW, temp 16c, visit from 05.55 til 08.00.

A single Mistle Thrush was on the playing field with a Pied Wagtail, a single young Pied Wagtail was also along the front of the main lake, around 6 Chiffchaffs were seen/heard around the park this morning, a Grey Heron was along the front edge of the main lake, 9 Lesser Black-backed Gulls on the main lake also held a Herring Gull, 3 Tufted Ducks were present with 2 on the main lake and 1 on the top pool, 6 Great Crested Grebes were on the main lake and also 9 Greylag Geese, the CanadaxGreylag Goose remains with the Canada Goose flock, a couple of young Swallows on the fencing around the new reeds (old beach area) are probably from the old canal buildings, at the top of the main lake the Mute Swan family remain 2 cygnet strong and around 60+ Swifts were flying around the top of the main lake, a single Collared Dove was seen twice flying across the main lake, just a couple of Blackcaps were heard today, at least 2 Reed Warblers were on the top pool, a Sparrowhawk flew over the gas and sewage works, also on the sewage works just 1 Whitethroat was heard and the Willow Warbler.
