Three Mandarin Ducks flew overhead, circled round, and then dropped in at the north lake.
First time I've seen them here. Two striking males, and one equally lovely female.
Two Kingfishers were under the road bridge; a good sight.
The Canada Geese were very vocal and mobile this morning, with lots of activity going on. And one of the white Mallards looked very impressive in the sunlight this morning.
At the south lake, a few Chiffchaff, and a single male Blackcap. The Little Grebe were in their usual place, and plenty of Tufted Duck about now.
And back at the footbridge, the rat pack were doing a good job of clearing up the fallen seed.
One bird I've not seen since the 18th September though, is the Common Gull.
I do hope he's Ok.
