Common Shelduck: the pair were swimming around Heron Island having lost all of their ducklings to the gulls.
Little Owl: I went looking for the pair on the eastern side of the park and was pleased to find they are nesting once again. They first bred in the park in 2007. It is possible that a second pair are breeding in another area and for their sake it is best that this is kept quiet.
Swallow: one zipped over my garden this afternoon.
Jackdaw: 2 flew north at 1.15pm.
Not the best clip ever, but I love being able to watch these birds at close quarters.
Not having been to watch these birds for 10 months I hoped that they were still present and that in time I could gain their confidence. Well he soon allowed me to get reasonably close, the female I think is on eggs or brooding young.
It looks as if he is puckering up in this shot.
It is the first time that I have seen a Heron regurgitate a pellet. I was busy taking Swift photos, so the settings on the camera were wrong.
