Our Resident Kingfisher



Date: 8th Feb - 2PM
Location:  Newton Park Lake - Patch Walk



Observation:  Within minutes of starting the walk, the resident Kingfisher was sat on the bridge, a few dog walkers flushed it but the flew the way we were walking so we got a few shots as it flew downstream, it let us get about 10 feet from it, sat in the sunlight in full view for most shots, which makes a change! Moving on, the builders still making a racket on the refurb so not much about walking through the campsite, 2 Roe Deer in the cluster of trees, and a fly-through Buzzard. From then on it was pretty sparce. The normal suspects of Crows, Rooks, Song Thrushes and Blackbird, showed. No Little Owls at the Lake, although there were ALOT of people there today. At Home Farm there were large groups of Chaffinches in nearby trees flying around the farm. A few Wagtails also.


Weather:  Blue Sky, Sunny, Cold
