The early morning sun quickly gave way to some cloud; not good for pictures.
A sleepy looking Wood Pigeon was at the car park when I arrived, and didn't seem too bothered about anything. After topping up the feeders, I made my way round the north lake.
Lesser Black-backed Gull on the grass outside the pub, along with a few Starlings. The Oystercatcher family were there briefly, before all taking to the air, and heading north. Maybe they've left for good now. A shame if they have; I rather liked looking for them in the mornings.
On the boat jetty, a Heron, and a few Black-headed Gulls, and a family of Mute Swans lazing on the grass.
Up by the weir, the Kingfishers quickly flew past, and disappeared along the river.
A few Swifts above, and Whitethroat calling from the trees as I made my way towards the south lake.
Common Terns were diving for fish, and a pair of Wood Pigeons were having a disagreement in some bushes. Lots of wing flapping, and posturing; maybe a territory dispute.
The boat people were massing on the shore line by the rowing club, and a couple of boats were slicing through the water, scattering the Coots and Mallards.
A couple of joggers pounding the footpath, some dog walkers strolling................a typical Saturday.
Time for me to head home.
