Highs of 22 degrees centigrade during my walk today, t-shirt weather! Sun equals lots of people, which although means a bit of disturbance, it is great to see people using the park.

3 Green Woodpeckers were seen, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers called, 3 Nuthatch were heard, 3 Treecreepers were also heard, and 4 Goldcrests were singing. 6 Stock Doves were noted, 2 Jays were seen, 1 Little Owl was spotted, and it was great to find 2 Chffchaffs singing. Highlight of my visit was watching a Common Buzzard soaring over Jenner's Bank - a first for the year!

Common Buzzard

6 Mute Swans were of note on the Lake along with 3 Great Crested Grebes. 2 Mediterranean Gulls were feeding on bread with the Black-headed Gulls along the Causeway and by the new bridge.

Horse Chestnut Bud

A Comma butterfly was seen on Jenner's Bank, plus it was great to see Lesser Celandine, Daffodils, and Early Dog Violet in flower.
