Yesterday I visited Anderton Nature Park, however there wasn't that much there, so this morning I got up (and got mum up) really early and we went to Marbury Park. It was very misty. We could hear all the geese honking from across the water, but we couldn't see that far.
The feeders had been filled up which meant I could enjoy all the Tits, Nuthatches and Woodpeckers. (Even a Green Woodpecker was sitting in a tree top, however I coudn't get a picture because it was to dark and only there for a few seconds).
This Robin seemed to be enjoying the mist coming from the lakes edge.
I spotted one of my mums favourite birds, a female Tufted Duck. We could hear the Mallards laughing from somewhere within the misty murk.
Now, this Blue Tit kept coming to and fro from the nut feeder so I was trying to get a picture of it with a nut in it's mouth, but instead I got it spirralling down into the bramble bushes.
There were so many Coal Tits down by the lake hide, however at the woodland birdhide I only spotted one or two. They must prefer the lake side spot. It's great seeing all the tits queuing up to wait for their turn on the feeders (unlike the greedy Starlings at home).
It was perfect wether for fungi, it was absolutely everywhere.
The woodland birdhide was not as busy as the lake hide, however I was patient and suddenly birds were coming in from all over the place, perfect for Wild Bird Wednesday.
I really enjoyed Marbury. However I am going to my grandma's in North Wales for a whole week now so I will look out for some intersting birds there. Grandma's turn to get up early! I am hoping to get to RSPB Conwy again.
Hopefully I will have some great picutres and news for my blog for when I get back.
