After some early rain it gradually brightened up producing some good sunshine later in
the morning, chilly though at Harold Park just 2.5°C.We arrived seeing good numbers
of BH Gull,Mallards & Coots with others including Moorhen,Mute Swan,Common Gull,
Tufted Duck & G.C.Grebe.
We walked up to the small pond which unusually held 23 Canadas, also in the tree tops
we saw a Song Thrush & a couple of Mistles.Also in this area we saw other common
species & a charm of Goldfinch.Then high up in a tree we spotted a couple of Redwings
which were soon joined by others moving around,we counted 20 in all. We were happy
with a good selection of birds seen & so we moved down the road to Park Dam.
