Harold Park & Park Dam

Sunday November 22nd a.m.
Another cold frosty start with a temperature of 3°C on our arrival at Harold Park with cloudy sky overhead.We went straight to the lake where we got a great surprise in the form of a drake Goldeneye out in the middle,a first for us at this site.A couple of Great Crested Grebes were also here the Godeneye kept out in the middle but we managed a couple of snaps, the BH Gulls kept harassing it so it dived several times taking evasive action.There was a Grey Heron on the island, others included a Mute Swan(Yellow Tag 162),Tufted Ducks,Moorhen & Coots.
Down the road at Park Dam there were still a pair of Gadwalls,BH & Common Gulls,Cormorant, Little Grebe,Canadas,Tufted Duck & a pair of Mute Swans(Yellow Tag 468 & Red Tag Y725).
