Park Dam

Saturday 3rd October a.m.
 Still foggy at Park Dam although visibility was improving the temperature remained at 9°C.The hedgerow seemed full of birds with Goldfinch,Blue,Great & LT Tits, Blackbirds,Robin,Dunnock, House Sparrow & what at first glance I thought were a couple of Willow Warblers but a later call suggested they were more likely Chiffchaff.In the field behind there were well over a hundred Canadas grazing as I made my way to the Lake where it was good to meet fellow birder JB. Here he had already found a female Wigeon & a pair of Gadwall which he pointed out to me.There was also a good number of Coots along with BH Gulls,a single Common Gull,Tufted Ducks,Moorhen, Cormorant, Little Grebes but only one GC Grebe was spotted.There were two Mute Swans which rounded off a good morning birding.N.P.
