Friday, July 12th 2013

The lake is healing well after being re-profiled in 2010. As more and more vegetation appears so do the birds associated with this habitat.

Tufted duck have bred here for the first time in a number of years and the young chicks can be seen following their parents about daily.

Tufties

Pied Wagtail often breed close to water. The lakeshore is the perfect place for this fast running bird to see and catch insects.
