Once the fog cleared, a sunny morning again.
Plenty of Chiffchaff calling all round the lake today.
Lovely to hear them.
A Song Thrush was quite bold, briefly,
before getting down to the business of searching for worms.
Up at the island, I got some good views of the Kingfishers for a change, as the mist slowly cleared.
At the top end of the north lake, a group of Goosander were chasing around on the water.
A pair of Mute Swans have decided to build a nest in a very precarious place.
Right at the edge of the lake, and in potential danger from any dogs that are left to run around.
The daffodils near the pub, were looking lovely in the sunlight,
and the Crow seems contented in his nest, on top of the pub.
The south lake was pretty quiet, until I reached the far end.
More Chiffchaff were calling along the way, and after stopping to feed the Robin, a pair of Blackcap were busily foraging through the branches of the trees.
Past the rowing club, a few geese flying around,
and then back at the car park, more Chiffchaff and Blackcap calling.
Out on the water, a pair of Great Crested Grebes were performing the weed dance; unfortunately it meant trying to capture it through the reeds, and into the sun.
Another good morning.
