Mayesbrook Wheatear's

Walked through the park on the way to the station this morning and halfway between home and the park a pair of Shelduck flew over! had I left two minutes later they would have been on the garden list.....gggrrrrrrr.....

On the main lake or newly named North lake a athya hybrid resembling a drake Pochard x Tufted was displaying to female pochard, and was possibly the same bird me and Shaun found on Berwick reservoir a couple of days ago.

Other birds of note were a single Swift, singing Blackcap and Chiffchaff.

Early Evening - Took Jack to the park to try and relocate the hybrid duck, but unfortunately it had moved on or was hiding, though a pair of Northern Wheatear more than made up for this.

Plenty of young broods about including both Canada and Greylag and a first for Egyptian.

Canada goslings

Found this Greylag in a redundant heron's nest!
