Harold Park & Park Dam

Saturday 30th November a.m.
   It was dry & bright on our arrival at Harold Park with a temperature of 5°C,we made
our way to the lake where good numbers of birds were present.Most notable of these
were Wigeon,Little Grebe,Great Crested Grebe & Mute Swan.
   We spent some time here getting a few snaps before moving down the road to Park Dam,
here were fewer birds but good to see two male Goosanders they've been missing for some
time now.
