3rd May 2019 – Eastville Park

Martin Tayler's bird blog & nature photos

It was a lovely morning in Eastville Park where it was generally warm and occasionally sunny. There was lots of bird activity too with the best being several views of a female kingfisher, mute swans mating and the first of the Canada Geese goslings. There were still no ducklings though. You could also just make out a tawny owl in a nest box on the kingfisher island.
