4th November

Regent’s Park

I popped into the park to see if I could count how many Heron nests there were this year, unfortunately there are still to many leaves on some of their chosen trees. It did give me the chance to see how many winter ducks had arrived and take a few quick snaps.

4 Dabchicks and 3 Great crested Grebes were on the main lake, viewed from area 9.

I saw several Shovelers on Saturday, certainly more than a dozen.

Yes there were 30 today, once they were shy but now are becoming more approacable.
