It was another cool and cloudy morning today. The cloud-cover cleared for about half an hour, which allowed the Sun to warm things up a bit, and in turn stirred a few birds to sing.
On the Lake were at least 7 Mute Swans, 1 Great Crested Grebe, 1 Cormorant, 2 Canada Geese, and 3 Shoveler, along with the resident Mallards, Coots and Moorhens. 2 Grey Wagtails hunted insects by the Waterfall, a single Lesser Black-backed Gull continued to fly around the Lake throughout the visit, 5 Black-headed Gulls were also on the Lake, a Kingfisher flew low over the Lake’s surface, and 3 Grey Herons fished on the Lake’s edges.
Also seen were several Common Darters, lots of Grey Squirrels, and a handsome Fox. Also, the Silver Birch leaves are turning their autumnal yellow.
