Dull start to the morning, but some good birds.
As I walked under the road bridge, to make my way round the north lake, two Egyptian Geese flew southwards, after being disturbed by the boats.
Oh well, it is the weekend.
Further round the lake, a Kingfisher, sitting in the bushes, and a large flock of Lapwing flying overhead.
Up at the top end, a male Goosander took to the air; flew round a bit, then headed north. Three females stayed behind though, and gave some good views.
Another Kingfisher in the bushes, and a few joggers running round the lake.
Oh well, it is the weekend.
Onto the south lake, and Crow feeding time.
Maybe he's expecting some bad weather to come, because he spent the time burying it, rather than eat now.
A good sized flock of Siskin, were flying around by the offices, and a large flock of Redwing too, up in the trees by the railway line.
Little Grebes in their usual spot, and opposite the rowing club, with a large group of gulls bobbing in the water, a Yellow Legged Gull.
Back at the feeders, a squirrel was trying his hardest to get some nuts, a few Mallard on the ground, picking up the spilt seed, and the lone Siskin on the nyger feeders.
A good morning, for a weekend.
