Summer 2014

Despite the recent rare appearance of a Gannet and a Hoopoe the main emphasis is on the many families of young birds around.   Birds start to become quieter as they hide away to renew their plumage so this time of year is a good one to watch out for dragonflies and butterflies that thrive in this area.  A quick reminder that there is a Canada Goose project still ongoing within the Water Park.  Please report any geese you see wearing red neck collars.
