A Grey Heron was posing on the Pulhamite island looking like a Japanese print. After the overnight frost the birds were very hungry. Three Cormorants were in the top of a bare tree on the main island. About a dozen Canada Geese flew in while we were walking around the lake. Unusually we saw none last week. Maybe they are foraging elsewhere and coming back to roost. It was good to find a few Siskins in the triangular wood by the lake. A Song Thrush and lots of Blackbirds were feeding on the yew berries. The House Sparrows were not in their usual spot; but we found a group in Grattons Park gathered around unripe blackberries. The juvenile Mute Swan was still present and learning how to compete for a share of the food. A full list of birds seen is given in the Bird Table .
