Wednesday 16th December 2020 - 08:15 to 10:00 There were small flocks of Redwing in the park and by the lake. They were watching from the tops of trees and flying down to eat the holly berries when the coast was clear. Two Great Crested Grebes were on the lake. There were many gulls - Herring and Black-headed . The highlight was a Kingfisher that sat among the leaves low to the water on one of the islands. It hardly moved for several minutes. Apparently it has been seen there several times over recent days. There were three Cormorants . The mixed flock of feral pigeons and white doves is growing. The pair of Egyptian Geese came close asking to be fed. It looks like their youngsters have finally left. It was good to see three Coal Tits but generally small birds were hard to find. A full list of birds seen is given in the Bird Table .
