The brief spells of sunshine that broke through the stormy clouds were very welcome. But the strong gusts of wind drove the small birds to shelter. It took a while to find any of the Grey Herons . One was lying very low down in their nest. I am still not sure how many young there are. The Egyptian Geese have 5 goslings. So they have not lost any more over the last few days. A Moorhen was sitting on a nest at the weir end of the lake. Rumour has it that the Mute Swans are nesting. I did not notice a nest. I must try harder next time. A Common Buzzard circled over the lake for a couple of laps. A Terrapin was resting on a log even though it was not the weather for sunbathing. The flowering trees and shrubs are lovely. The spring flowers are heart-lifting: tulips; daffodils; primroses; cowslips; fritillaries and violets. A full list of the birds seen is given in the Bird Table .
