Early on my visit to the lakes found them quite busy, with 15 CANADA GOOSE and the feral BARNACLE GOOSE, the KINGFISHER was also seen again, and a pair of GOOSANDER had returned, with another female splashing down to join them whilst I was there. The regulars of MUTE SWAN, COOT, MALLARD and MOORHEN made up the rest of what was on the water.
An average-ish sort of day for February, nothing new for the year or months list, I did see what looked to be a Barn Owl pellet by a horse jump at Migrant Alley, on dissecting it I found a scapular bone and the claw of a small passerine amongst all the fur, would be good to find Barn owl here :-)
|Shame the light was so poor, this Goosander came reasonably close today|
|It swam off on hearing the camera shutter, they really do shift when they need to!|
