Saturday 25th September

It was cool but very very sunny for my walk this morning. Lots of birds were calling!!

An amazing 11 Goldcrests were recorded, 3 Coal Tits were heard - with one individual singing - a Treecreeper was heard calling along the River Len, 2 Nuthatch called, 5 Chiff Chaff were noted, 1 Willow Warbler called from the hawthorn hedge running along the eastern edge of the Lake, 1 Green Woodpecker was heard, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers were noted, a Meadow Pipit flew south, 4 Jay were seen, and the local Mistle Thrushes seemed particularly noisy and active throughout the park today. Of note on the Lake were 5 Mute Swans, 2 Cormorants and 2 Great Crested Grebes.

Comma on Blackberries

Also of note were Small White butterflies, 1 Speckled Wood, and 1 Comma.

Is it ok to park within the Parks boundary for the bat walk on Wednesday 29th September?

E 'vero! Credo che sia una buona idea. Sono d'accordo con te.
Condivido pienamente il suo punto di vista. Si tratta di qualcosa di diverso e l'idea di mantenere.

Hi Anonymous!! Yes thats fine to park within the Park's boundary for the bat walk. We are meeting in the main car park and the gates will be opened and locked again when we leave.

Next Event - TBA
