Vintage ‘Notes from the lake June 2009’
We now have a lot of goslings, ducklings and baby coots and moorhens. Unfortunately we also have hungry crows. These crows swoop over the baby birds and carry them away in their feet to nests in the wood behind the lake.

A ‘Bat hunt’ was held one evening. This is very interesting when hundreds of small bats (Pippistrels) fly over the water picking up insects. It looks like a cloud of big moths.There was a ‘spring bird call’ one morning at 5.30 hours!! This is to hear the ‘dawn chorus’.
Croydon Sailing club uses the lake on Sunday mornings. On Saturday mornings children are taught how to sail small boats and taught life-saving drills (all wear life jackets).
The large tree outside the club was cut down owing to a disease. I was told it was over 100 years old!
The coot with a broken leg is still there also a male tufted duck with an injured leg. Both refused to be rescued.
There are cricket and bowls matches at the weekend. These games have been played here for over 100 years
