Harold Park & Park Dam

From 30th May a.m.
 We had a late morning visit to Harold Park & Park Dam yesterday with some decent fine weather,
unlike this mornings heavy rain.A good mixture of birds at Harold Park but no Mute Swans,Swifts & House Martins were feeding over the water,Moorhens were enjoying the sunshine among the daisies.
It was great to see the pair of Great Crested Grebes with their two health chicks, one regularly having a ride on the parents back even though getting big at around three weeks old.
 Down the road at Park Dam again Swifts & House Martins joined by Swallows & a Sand Martin. There were two Mute Swans here along with Canadas,Tufted Duck,Little Grebe & some nesting Coots & good to see a Pied Wagtail.
