The Wigeon numbers have exploded too, up from 7 last time to a whopping 60 today. The hoped for Goosander were absent from the pool however, perhaps because the levels are so low. As I was scanning the pool a familiar sound reached my ears for the first time in ages here - Kingfishers calling! Two birds quickly stormed past, chasing each other but didn't linger for photographs, it was nice enough to see them back here after the recent harsh winters. A few other decent patch birds showed around the park including Sparrowhawk, Green Woodpecker, Grey Wagtail and Coal Tit but otherwise there wasn't much about except for a dog that was the size of a small, actually make that a large, horse.
