Harold Park

Sunday 24th July a.m.
A cloudy but dry start to the day with a temperature of 18°C on our arrival at Harold Park.We headed for the lake where there were a pair of Mute Swans with four cygnets.The pair of Great Crested Grebes still have four chicks which have grown well since our last visit.One adult was resting with one chick whilst the other adult was busy feeding three hungry chicks.There was also the usual Canadas,Mallards,Tufted Ducks,Coots & Moorhens.In a tree on the island was a Grey Heron and nearby was a Collared Dove.Higher up in the park near the bowling green a Pied Wagtail was feeding a juvenile.
