It was a lovely warm sunny morning. The park is looking beautiful - very lush and
green and rich with colourful flowers and blossoms.
We have not been able to visit for a couple of weeks. We have heard about the new
arrivals. It was good to catch up and see them if they are a little older.
There were two groups of 6 and 8 Canada goslings. The 2 Egyptian goslings are
now nearly as big as their parents and are taking on their adult plumage. There are
3 baby Moorhens, 3 baby Coots and 3 Mallard ducklings.
A Common Buzzard was soaring high above the park.
I thought I glimpsed a Swift flying along the top of the trees; but I didn't count it.
There were at least 4 large Terrapins hauled out on trees in the water.
A full list and count of the birds seen is given in the
