Dull, cloudy morning, but it didn't stop the waiting Mallards at the car park.
Feeding done, I set off round the north lake, and soon found the Kingfisher sitting in his regular spot on the island.
Up towards the top end, a distant Shoveler, a Goosander, and a pair of Great Crested Grebes performing the weed dance.
Always a fantastic sight to see. I took a mountain of pictures, and these are the only ones I've sorted out so far.
Moving further on, a young looking Grey Heron was on the steps, by the ivy clad wall.
He soon took off; must have been shy.
Round towards the pub, and the Crow is getting on rather well with his nest building on the pubs windmill structure. It looks an untidy mess of sticks, but it's home to him; and a female Goosander swimming in the small bay in front of the pub.
Onto the south lake, and the Crows were late in coming, but arrived eventually, and had some apple.
Very little around on the south lake, apart from a male Goosander, and then down by the offices, a pair of Blue Tits.
Last year, a pair nested in one of the poles that house the security cameras. It seems they must like it, and have returned to the very same pole.
A lot of coming and going, and making ready by them both.
Let's hope they are successful once again.
Eventually, down by Cormorant island, and a fruitless search for any sign of yesterdays Oystercatchers.
Maybe they were off feeding somewhere.
