Birds of the park


John Gamble has kindly forwarded some images of birds noted yesterday at Abington Park, Northampton. A pack of twenty stunning Goosanders provided some opportunities to photograph these normally shy birds, which during the last few winters have regularly visited the lakes and to a point become used to people wandering around. In addition John found the pair of Ring-necked Parakeets which seem to have taken up residence in the park and again appears to be a repeat of previous winters.

Today (Tuesday) and I was driving out near Fotheringhay at about 12 noon when I noticed a goose flock next to the road and River Nene in some grass meadows. Close to the assembly of Greylag and Canada Geese and Mute Swans were four Pink-footed Geese - map reference TL059928.
