2nd July

Richmond Park

A quick visit to the park to pick up a hire vehicle to enable me to lead OPM nest removal teams around the parks. I arrived at 5.30am and the heat from the sun was already quite warm. It didn’t take long to swap all I needed from my car into the hire vehicle, so I decided to call in at Pen Ponds on route to Bushy Pk.

Birds seen were pretty much what I was expecting apart from;

Teal: a drake was on the shore on Pen Ponds Plantation.
