Another year so I wonder what will happen around here perhaps a new goose or bird will arrive to cause excitement. It has happened before when a rare American bird was seen here. Photographers flocked to our lake and we had reports about it on television and in the papers.
Now we have a female swan (pen) and a young swan (cygnet) still in brown feathers to watch. The usual ducks, coots, Moorhens and grebes are still here. Tufted ducks have arrived and also a large number of seagulls! A few Canada geese fly in daily.
A walk through the little wood is always interesting woodpeckers and nuthatchers are usually seen picking at the branches to reach the insects. There is a good variety of other birds such as robins, wrens, hedge sparrows, starlings, magpies, crows, chaffinches and warblers. Squirrels are also there jumping about from tree to tree. They are very tame and come near to be fed.
