Today I visited Marbury Park to see what water fowl was lerking about.
The lake it's self was rather choppy because of the winds and we only saw a few Great Crested Grebes
two coots, tufted ducks
Cormarants, 6 Herons, and a great big flock of Canada Geese
Now that might seem like alot but I normally see alot more birds when the weather is better. There was nothing at the woodland bird hide because the feeders hadn't been filled up.
On the walk back my mum thought she had just seen a Hawfinch but she hadn't, it apparently was an escaped bird from captivity according to the ranges (Chris and Alan).
We did call back at the lake bird hide and whilst me and mum had a food fight a sneaky little water vole (it might of been a mouse, does anyone have any idears what it is) came and snatched a little piece of bread which had fallen on the floor.
And finally I just wanted to mention the beautiful sunset we had last night, don't think we'll get that tonight with all the rain we're having. This sunset picture will be my Sky Watch Friday post.
I am really looking forward to the bird fair this weekend.
