Wollaton Park 13/04/2013

April 14, 2013 in Holiday and Trip Reports by Jim Steele

A few hours searching for Lesser Spotted Woodpecker in decent, Spring weather but alas, no joy. Several Willow Warbler, though, a few Chiffchaff and a Blackcap singing. Great Spotted Woodie and Green Woodie. 10 Shoveler and 4 Red Crested Pochard on the lake with 3 Gadwall and a pair of Great Crested Grebe. The Island Heronry is doing well and is suitably noisy! Two enormous Pike in the lake (well, biggest I have ever seen but then that isn’t too many…). A suburban Buzzard overhead with 2 hirundines that looked to me like House Martins but were just distant silhouettes…..and somewhat surprisingly…. 3 Ravens barrel-rolling!
