Had a trip to Langton Lakes today, not been for a little while. There were geese, and tufted ducks, and geese, and about 6-8 Great Crested Grebes, geese, a posse of cormorants, geese, a couple of darters, geese 3 red admiral, a comma and some geese.
Plus youngsters hitching a ride
an "I'm not sure" duck
A beautifully refreshed robin looking pristine
There were also a number of Great, Blue and Marsh Tit, Goldfinch, and Chaffinch also looking pristine which was nice to see
Some sort of sandpiper (so I was told by a chap in the hide)
And with a Snipe (as I was also told)
Common (probably) Darter
A comma at the top of a tree
Cormorant being magnificent
And then being less so when his mate comes to visit
A not quite red Red Admiral
A little singy birdie
And did I mention there were geese?
