This drake Shelduck is part of a pair that has returned for the past three years.

Unfortunately this proud pair of Egyptian Geese have managed to breed in the park. This is only the third breeding record.

Cheers Fraser.

Did you have any luck owl or were you just enjoying a fine morning in the park?spops

I stopped by to try and get the owl on my 'cycle to work' list but could't find it. Will try again (and hopefully post more sightings for you here).
Cheers,
Fraser

We need more reports from other birders. It tends to be all Dave and me, with little help from a handful of other casual birders. The Little Owl shows well when they are feeding young. If you want to get a few photos email me and we can arrange an early morning viewing.

Thanks for the offer Tony, I'll be in touch when they're successful.
Cheers,
Fraser
