|Stunning spring Daf!|
Over at the lakes, it is less disturbed, as most of it is private, a look over the water gave me views of the regular CANADA GEESE, 8 were seen, as well as the mixed pair of Canada/BARNACLE GOOSE, there were also 4 MOORHEN, two drake MALLARD and a female Mallard sitting on a nest on the far bank, the COOT pair were still around too :-)
Looking around the surrounding Scrubby Woods, it was evident more CHIFFCHAFFS have arrived here, 4 were heard singing, but little else sang, just ROBIN, WREN and DUNNOCK. BULLFINCH were heard though, and a single REDWING was seen, along with a pair of GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKERS. A KESTREL hunted overhead, the first ive seen of it for 3 days. A look at the nearby garden feeders proved fruitless, the reason being a SPARROWHAWK was sitting in the tree the feeders hang from! Two Comma Butterflies sat and posed for a photo, my 500mm lens struggles with the macro shots, but here's the results.........

|Whilst sitting watching the sky, I heard this Rabbit, worth a photo, thats how quite the skywatching was, I resorted to photographing Rabbits!|
