Park Dam

Sunday 24th July a.m.
 We followed our earlier visit to Harold Park by moving the short distance down the road to Park Dam where the temperature was still at 18°C.On approaching the lake we saw a pair of Little Grebes feeding five young chicks which were able to watch for quite sometime. Canadas flew from a nearby field on to the lake and there were several broods of Coots along with Moorhen & Tufted Ducks.A pair of Gt Crested Grebes were on the other side of the lake with three chick and flying above were Swallows and Swifts.It was also good to see a pair of Grey Wagtails fly past us & land on the overhead wires where we were able to get a snap.
