Friday 23rd August 2019 - 9:45 to 12:00It was a hot sunny day - unusual for a Bank Holiday weekend.There are fewer Canada Geese and the young ones are almost indistinguishable from the adults.The two adult Great Crested Grebes were present. No sign of a young one. Sadly a terrapin was on the nest where the Grebe had been last time. Another large terrapin was sunning on a tree stump.At the bottom of the meadow the thistles are coming into seed and they were being enjoyed by Goldfinches. The teasels will be next.A Kingfisher made a fly-by appearance and a Grey Heron was in the top of the trees on the island.A full list of the birds seen is in the Bird Table.
