25th December 2018 – Eastville Park

Merry Christmas everyone; and it wouldn’t be Christmas without a robin.

It was great to go for a walk in our local park on a mild but somewhat misty morning and see so many people out and about enjoying the facility. There was plenty of wildlife for them to enjoy too.

The headline news still seems to be the goosanders with a record 13 there today.

However, there were also plenty of other birds feeding off the fish stock which must be getting low with cormorants, grey herons and kingfishers all seeming to find plenty to satisfy their appetites.

The kingfisher is always the highlight for me but today the best views were of two grey wagtails on the stream that feeds down in to the River Frome.
