Monday 12th November

A late morning walk was under a clear blue sky and a warm Sun. The temperature was cold after another frost during the night.

5 Jays were seen, only 1 Goldcrest was spotted, several calls from Siskin could be heard in the wet woodland along the River Len, 3 Treecreeper were noted, a Skylark flew over the fields, a Kestrel was seen perched in a Oak tree in the area in front of Mote House, a Sparrowhawk was mobbed by 2 Crows as flew over, 4 Redwing were heard, several Pied Wagtail were heard, a Nuthatch called from a Copper Beech, and a noisy flock of 5 Fieldfare flew north towards the playing fields - the first for the year.


On the Lake were at least 5 Mute Swans, 56 Canada Geese, 2 Great Crested Grebe, 2 Shoveler, and the countless Mallards, Coots and Moorhens. The gull flock on the Lake consisted of at least 19 Common Gulls, even more Black-headed Gulls, 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull, and 4 Herring Gull. In addition to this, 2 Grey Herons were seen.
