13th February

The team putting out the net, before it was dragged down one of the narrower parts of the lake.
A nice sized Tench was a pleasant surprise.

As to was this Carp

Most of the other fish that were netted were small Perch, with lesser numbers of Roach and Rudd.

For the last couple of days we have been down at St James's Park. The lake their is being draining and the silt and the silt removed. So that not all of the fish are lost we have been helping their wildlife officers catch them.

Birds seen their today were.

One was circling high above the lake before drifting off east, possibly back towards the Tate.
Great Black-backed Gull: An adult was on the Pelicans rocks at lunchtime, it was present here yesterday.
Little Grebe: Four birds were trilling and chasing each other around the lake.

Kensington Gardens:
Tawny Owlet:
One youngster was resued from the ground this morning.
