I’m getting fed up with this wind now.
Just a quick visit to do the seed, and walk round the north lake. Some shopping to do, and things to sort out, so only a brief visit. Work on Wednesday, so this might be the only proper visit this week.
The Blackbirds were waiting by the bridge when I got there, and the Crows and Magpies were hovering around the bird table. Fed those, and made my way round the north lake. Still very windy, and not very much about.
A group of Wood Pigeons looking for food on the grass, by the pub, and the female Goosander down by the weir. The usual Canada Geese, Wigeon, Pochard, and hungry Mallard; and that was about it.
Had to get off to the shops for a few things, and got some new feeders to put up in the trees. Stopped off at the lake on the way home, and put them up.
Looking very good.
