6th November

A 1st winter Mediterranean Gull was on the lake this morning. This was only the second time a bird in this plumage had been seen in the park since 1982.



I thought the scaling of this Cormorants feathers was worth a quick snap.


Water Rail: 2 birds still showing in area 2.
Mediterranean Gull: a 1st winter bird was on the lake until at least 9.30am, but couldn't be found at mid-day.
Chiffchaff: one was by the Nature Study Centre, area 1 this morning.
Siskin: a dozen were feeding in Silver Birch trees in area 24.
