There was just enough time to walk over to the lakes and back this morning, before the heavy rain and blustery wind set in for the rest of the day.
I didn't get to see much, especially in the very dark and dismal light, just the MUTE SWAN and COOT pair on the ornamental lake. The main lake had 3 CANADA GEESE on it, and the flash of a KINGFISHER, while the small lake had 4 more Canada Geese and the feral BARNACLE GOOSE present, MALLARDS and MOORHENS were seen on all three lakes. A CORMORANT sat at the top of a silver birch tree on the bankside, and a small party of maybe a dozen REDWING flew over.
On the way back home, the wind was picking up, blowing in the first spits of rain, all I saw of note was the male KESTREL hunting over the Ashes Lane Field, what another terrible day :-(
Looks like tomorrow will showery with a gale force wind blowing, so I don't expect much from the day, Sunday looks like the next time i'll get a decent amount of time out.
I've also run out of photo's !!!!
