The early sunshine had clouded over by the time we set off on Mothering Sunday.We saw a Coal Tit on a couple of occasions which is not usual.One adult Egyptian Goose was alone. Still no sign of the other adult or the goslings.The two Mute Swans are still there.Noticeably there were no Black-headed Gulls at all - just a week ago there were large noisy flocks of them. Presumably they have left to go to their breeding sites.One Herring Gull sat on the lake in splendid isolation.Two Magpies were mobbing a Crow that was perched next to an old nest.Two of the hybrid ducks were still present. The smaller, "cinnamon" one was not seen.Some primroses are in bloom and tiny bunches of cowslips are showing. The banks of daffodils and crocuses are lovely.A full list of the birds seen is given in the Bird Table.
