Sunday 1st April

It was cloudy with a few sunny spells on today visit between 9.30 and 10.50, and there was strong northerly wind. 1 Chiff Chaff sang from behind the Park & Ride. 5 Grey Herons fished along the Len. A Pheasant called and 2 Chiff Chaff sang from Len Wood. A Kingfisher called from the Len and a Great Spotted Woodpecker drummed on the large Oak along the Len. A Meadow Pipit called over the Meadow.

A Great Crested Grebe fished by the Weir. A Cormorant sat on the third island from the Weir. A Great Crested Grebe was found sitting on a nest on the island next to the large Chestnut. A quick scan of the Lake showed at least 5 Mute Swans, 6 Tufted Duck and 4 Great Crested Grebes, together with the Canada Geese, Mallard, Coots and Moorhens. There was a large flock of Black Headed Gulls and Common Gulls on the Lake. 2 Grey Wagtails and a Drake Mallard were on the Pond. A Nuthatch flew from the large Sweet Chestnut on Jenner’s Bank.

There were lots of fry in the Len by the ‘Kingfisher’ Bridge.
