24th August 2009
The lakes were quite good again during the late afternoon today, with a Teal still present at Terry's Pool along with 5 Tufted Ducks, and a Hedgehog observed foraging in daylight in a newly cut field next to the channel that runs around the pool - was amazed that it had survived the tractor's grass cutter which had only just finished, and that the time of day didn't seem to concern it. Also noted at the lakes were 7 Common Terns, a Kingfisher, 40+ Swallows and 1 or 2 Mute Swan. Coming home along Norton Lane, saw 2 Kestrels over the Hungry Horse field.
