Wednesday 26th June 2019 - 9:45 to 12:00 There were many young birds at varying stages of development in the park. The six Egyptian Geese goslings are almost as big as their two parents and are moulting into their adult plumage. It is difficult to count the Canada Geese goslings because they now look so much like their parents. There were some thirteen of them in a communal group - plus one very much younger one. There were four young Coot and about seven young Moorhen . One Coot was building a nest preparing for another cycle. I only saw one young Great Crested Grebe with two adults . Maybe one of the juveniles has been lost. Some Swifts were hawking over the lake and skimming the surface of the water. A full list of the birds seen is in the Bird Table .
