24th February 2017 – Stoke Park and Eastville Park

It was good to get out this afternoon for a walk around Stoke Park, Eastville Park and Stapleton. Nothing very memorable except the Mallard in Stoke Park were very colourful as were the Woodpigeon and Stock Dove in Eastville Park.

Blackbirds were busy and Robins (I counted 8) were very noisy. There was a Grey Wagtail on the weir on the River Frome and lots of Black-headed Gull on Eastville Park lake (some have very black heads now). There was a solitary Mute Swan on the lake (hope it finds a partner) and a single Heron.

There was a Starling on our roof and a flock of 32 Goldfinch in the tree over the road.
