Thursday 18th October 2018 - 14:10 to 15:10I made a quick visit to the park to see if there were any fungi to interest our guided walk in two days time. It was a fine sunny autumn afternoon. One of the first birds I saw was a handsome male Pheasant by the rockery. He was probably seeking sanctuary from the shoot. It was noticeable how many geese had reappeared. There was a flock of some 25 Canada Geese with an Egyptian Goose among them. More Mallard than recently and the usual few Moorhen were in pairs. The Jays were very active and mixed flocks of Tits were working their way through the bushes. A Common Buzzard was circling over the flats - the first for a while.A full list of the birds seen is given in the Bird Table.
