I helped lead a bat survey course in the Park on Wednesday. 5 species were seen: Common & Soprano Pipistrelle, Serotine, Noctule and Daubenton's. A female Tawny Owl was also heard calling from a Leylandii on the Golf Course.
At least 7 Blackcaps were heard singing, 2 Goldcrests were heard, 2 Treecreepers were seen along the Causeway, at least 6 Whitethroats could be heard singing, 3 Chiff Chaff were singing, and a Great Spotted Woodpecker called from along the Len. A total of 6 Reed Warblers were heard singing, and on the Lake were at least 5 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Mute Swans, 89 Canada Geese, 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, and at least 32 Black-headed Gulls. 2 Grey Herons were seen, at least 12 House Martins were feeding over the Lake, and spotted on the fallen tree on the Golf Course side of the Lake was a Grey Wagtail and a Common Sandpiper - the first I have recorded this year.
