I wasn't going to post today; but
Trevor met me over the lake this morning, and after doing the feeding duties, we made our way round the north lake.
All the usual birds about, but I didn't bother doing any video today. Suddenly Trevor picked out a Goldeneye in the distance. It looked to be the same one as yesterday.
We carried on round the lake, and soon spotted some Goosander.
The total number for both north and south today, was 17. Almost a personal record.
A couple of other birds that made an appearance, that don't usually, were 3 Teal.
The main reason for today's post though, is a short video Trevor took of myself and Doris.
And finally, to round off a great morning, there was a flock of around 20 Waxwings near the bottom of my road, and a pair of Blackcaps in the garden. The male enjoying an apple.
