Thursday 26th July 2018 - 09:15 to 11:15 It was already oppressively hot and humid at 9 o'clock. There were almost no small birds to be seen. The few that I glimpsed were dashing into the shade of the trees. The 3 young Great Crested Grebes  are growing and are approaching the size of their parents. A single Grey Heron  was walking and fishing around the main island. The water level is low. I enjoyed prolonged views of a Kingfisher  fishing from the plants on the bank by the Pulham island. At one stage it caught a small fish and went to the shore of the lake to eat it. Brilliant views in the open. A second Kingfisher flew past then they teamed up and were seen together at different places around the lake. Available small fish are good news for our birds. One Egyptian Goose  looked lonely; while there were some 30 Canada Geese . A Song Thrush  was eating berries in the yew trees. A hint of the winter yet to come and still so far away. As I was leaving I bumped into the group of the park Wellbeing Walkers who seemed to be having a good time and enjoying the weather. A full list of the birds seen is given in the Bird Table .
