The Whooper Swan was present for a while this afternoon on Tesco lake until its almost constant calling attracted the attention of one of the resident Mute Swans.It was last seen going down on the streamside lake but not before it had passed right overhead.

All three Egyptian Geese are still present on the lake and on Alders lake 20+ Swallows and 30+ Sand Martin were seen.

Reed Buntings are still coming into the garden,seven are present today,five with rings and two without.


  1. Hi Alan, had a quick look for the Egyptians late this afternoon but couldn't see them. Which end of the lake were they?

  2. Hi Phil,mainly the western end where people feed the ducks,but I have seen them swimming along the southern edge of the lake in which case you would need your bins.
