Topped up the bird feeders, fed the Mallards down there, and then made my way round the lake.
Some food rubbish left in the car park, which the Magpies seemed to be enjoying; and a few dragonflies flying around too. I managed to get some video and pictures of a Southern Hawker when it settled.
(Not the sharpest picture. A bit dull this morning, and 1/20, handheld.)
Plenty of Black-headed Gulls around, and good to see Gordon Gadwall again.
A shame some people just let their dogs run riot and chase the geese. I wonder what they'd do if their dog actually caught one, and killed it? Probably nothing.
On the south lake, no sign of Peter Pochard, but I did catch a glimpse of the Mute Swans with the single cygnet.
A couple of Herons fishing up by the rowing club, and half a dozen Pied Wagtails flying around.
Brief today; a visit to the heart doctor, and then off to see my sister.
And don't forget to put some water out for the birds.
