Nothing significantly different on the migrant front.
Common Shelduck: the pair that are raising their family at the north-eastern end of the lake have still managed to keep all 9 ducklings.
Common Tern: possibly the pair that were first recorded in 2005 are back for their 10th year. They have never attempted to breed here, preferring Brent Reservoir to raise their family.
Sedge Warbler: 2 males still present area 5.
Reed Warbler: 4 males singing.
The juv that was evicted from his nest is growing well, although this twig cannot have much nutritional value.
The 3 in the Cherry Tree at the end of the island are also doing well, fortunately for them the non-breeding flock of Crows have moved on. Their attention was drawn to a Grey Squirrel which was clambering around in the branches just below the nest.
Bottoms up, was this cheeky rascal mooning at me.
Not that one gull is going to do much damage, the Heron dosen’t want to take a chance.
This pair have possibly been visiting the park since 2005.
I have no idea why the Shelduck feels threatened by a Pochard but he chased him for at least 1/4 of a mile, making sure he was well away from his what are now quite large young.
This is what Coots seem to do best.
