I made my way to the lakes again, via the Tree Nursery and Pub Field rather than going the Small Holding and Wet Woods route, I counted 18 MEADOW PIPITS, 15 LINNETS and a GREEN WOODPECKER as I walked through the Tree Nursery, then on exiting here, I walked the dividing hedgerow with the Pub Field, and found a party of busy LONG TAILED TITS with two GOLDCRESTS. Out on the Pub Field were at least 50 BLACK HEADED GULLS, and again around 20 LAPWING were present, but no sign of the Buzzard today, however, another raptor was on show - a PEREGRINE (61) it flew over the field, having the effect of putting everything up, so I quickly moved on to the lakes.
I could hear the TEAL calling as I approached the ornamental lake that is situated in the grounds of the large house, it had moved lakes again :-) with it were two pairs of MALLARD. On the adjacent main lake a CORMORANT was fishing, more Mallards were recorded.
here's a couple of garden bird photo's from the sunny Sunday just gone.
