Saturday 25th October

This morning I was helping create glades in the woodland in the northeast corner of the Park, with BTCV and Friends of Mote Park.

Birds noted this morning were 2 Bullfinch, at least 56 Redwing, 5 Goldcrest, 2 Green Woodpeckers, 2 Song Thrush were singing, a small party of Siskin passed through the woodland as we worked, and a Nuthatch was heard calling.

A quick look at the Lake produced 6 Great Crested Grebes, 4 Canada Geese, and 8 Mute Swans, along with the usual Mallards, Coots and Moorhens. 1 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 8 Common Gulls, and at least 73 Black-headed Gulls were also on the Lake.
