The weather was lovely when we arrived in Stoke Park and a stonechat appeared straightaway.
There wasn’t much else until we got to Eastville Park where we saw the tawny owl, a cormorant and a kingfisher but the weather was very gloomy by this time. We have no reason to complain.
I had so little success looking for birds in Stoke Park that I turned my attention to taking landscape shots and I continued in that vain when I moved on to Eastville Park. And then 3 kingfishers came out to play … and I got over excited and took too many photos.
In Stoke Park I did get a very poor photo of a reed bunting, a cormorant and a moorhen. In Eastville Park I was lucky with a grey wagtail, a tawny owl, a cormorant and a grey heron too.
