Sunday 7th March

Joined the volunteer group today to do some coppicing along the edge of the main lake opposite Fingers and around the Crescent. Couldn't have asked for better weather and the group did a great job.

Didn't have much time for bird watching but did have 42 Wigeon over north east. Another 6 Wigeon circled overhead for a while, may have been six of the park regulars. 10 Tufted Ducks (2f) were on East Fingers and a pair of Great Crested Grebes looked like they were nest building in one of the West Fingers reed beds. A third GC Grebe was also hanging around in the same area.

Still good numbers of Mute Swans on the main lake. They were very mobile today, the resident male was chasing around trying to clear his patch.

Look out for report and photo's from the rangers about the Volunteer activities and join us next time keeping the park in good order! See the panel on the right for details of guided walks and volunteer days.
