19th May

The youngsters are being buffeted by these blustery conditions.

The Great spotted Woodpeckers just around the corner have no such problems.


Stock Doves in my garden, one male bird looking very proud with his chest puffed out.

Not an awful lot happening, with the migration period soon about to end in the park. Most of our regular migrants will have passed through by the 22nd May.
I have been told recently that I have been a bit down beat recently. Well this wind is doing us no favours.

Park birds are basically the same.

Garganey:
The drake is still present in area 1.
Little Owl: The male was very vocal this morning in area 19.
Reed Warbler: Still 4 males holding territories.
Long-tailed Tit. There were three large family groups seen around the park this morning.

Hi Tony

A pair of Common Terns flying over the lake at 6pm.
He tried to entice her with a fish but she was more interested in flying around!

Thanks for that.
She might prefer bigger specimens and not small fry.
