Out of our August brood of Egyptian Geese an amazing 75% have survived to flying maturity and will shortly be leaving the lake for pastures new.
Our pair of swans, having returned in August from their annual moult, seem very settled. Fingers crossed for 2018 cygnets. However the cob (male) is only two and a half years old.
Early winter visitors to arrive so far – Little Grebe (dabchick) and Shoverlers
