Easter weekend

Fairly quiet on the wildlife front over the weekend despite the fine weather. A few Willow Warblers arrived and were singing at various locations around the park, most notably by both the hides. Three Greylag geese were regulars but Sand Martins were absent. A pair of Muntjac were seen from Kramer hide. Both Sparrowhawks were regular visitors to the nest and the Little Grebe were frequently seen on the "nest". Both the Mute Swans and Great Crested Grebes appear to be sitting on eggs. On Sunday the Carp in the main lake were very active with many leaping clear of the water. Shoveler and Gadwall were seen during the weekend on the Finger lakes.
