Sunday 28th July 2019 - 9:15 to 11:15 It was overcast and humid after the break in the hot spell. The Egyptian Geese were back. There were 4 juveniles but no sign of the adults. A group of 4 young Moorhens were swimming together. We did not see the juvenile Great Crested Grebe . But the two adults were together and one was sitting on a nest. Hopefully they are having a second brood. An early indication of the coming autumn was a mixed flock of tits moving through the trees at the bottom of the steps down from the bank of the lake. Over 30 birds went past including families of Blue , Great and Long-tailed tits. Over the road in Grattons Park, a Buzzard flew low over the stream to swoop up into the trees and alarm the pigeons and magpies . The wild flowering plants by the lake and in Grattons Park are very lush and attractive. A full list of the birds seen is in the Bird Table .
