A sunny start to the day, but just the north lake visited.
The last couple of days I've cleaned and disinfected all the feeders, so everything should be fresh for the coming winter.
I walked the north in the opposite direction for a change, and after crossing over the noisy road bridge, I was soon back to the reasonable quiet of the lake. Feeding in front of the pub, was a Green Woodpecker. A regular at this spot.
Another regular, further round, is a group of Greenfinches, that feed on the rose hips.
At the back of the pub, the regular Wigeon were missing however; just a group of Canada Geese, and a couple of Coots.
At the gully, near the weir, a pair of Pied Wagtails were flying together, and it looked as though they were hunting insects together.
The river level has gone down a lot since my last visit, and over on the field was a Little Egret. As I finished filming him, and put the camera away, a Kingfisher flew along the river. Typical!
Quite a few Redwings were flying overhead in small groups, and lots of gulls too.
Finally reaching the road bridge, one of the Mallards was patiently waiting to be fed, and then it was back to the car park.
