A cold, clear morning, with a full moon.
Soon clouded over though, and I suspect more rain to come.
After feeding Doris and the gang, I made my way round the north lake.
A lone Goosander was up by the island, and by the time I'd reached the top end, another flew overhead.
The river has burst its banks again, and the weir is a raging torrent.
The lake has now flooded over to swamp the gully, so if we get any more rain, I can see the whole lot flooding again.
Up by the pub, a Green Woodpecker was probing the grass, and Doris and co. flew over for feeding again.
A quick exit to the south lake, while they were busy with the seed.
Nothing much out on the lake, that I could see; even the gulls seemed to have left in numbers today. A quick look in the muddy field, and then on to feed the Robin.
Again he quickly came down for some seed from my hand. He's getting more relaxed now. I put a few handfuls of seed on the ground for him, and then made my way down towards the rowing club.
Out in the middle of the lake, the Scaup were together in a group. Very far away though.
Further along, closer to the side, a female Goosander was swimming towards the houses.
By the time I'd almost reached the car park, the sun had disappeared behind some cloud, but over by Cormorant island, a male Goosander was swimming amongst the Pochard, and Tufted Duck.
