16th May

If you stand by the fence where indicated by the red circle you should be able to watch the Kestrel feeding their young.

The three pairs of Little Grebe (Dabchick) are finding life in the park a struggle. The Coots have eaten their eggs or destroyed their nests.




A very breezy day with the ocassional shower during the afternoon. Not the best conditions for diurnal migration over the park. Lets hope the weather improves for tomorrows bird walk.

Garganey:
Drake still present in area 1.
Kestrel: The birds in the wetland pen have four young, these can be viewed if you stand where the red circle is marked on the map.
Herring Gull: For the past two days there has been a gathering of around 167 birds on the open spaces at 5.40am.
Great Spotted Woodpecker: At least 6 pairs are feeding young.
