7th May 2019 – Eastville Park and Snuff Mills

Martin Tayler's bird blog & nature photos

As the birds become more difficult to see the butterflies begin to appear in good numbers; in the park this morning there were plenty to see.

The only  birds I managed to photograph were grey wagtails, a robin, a grey heron (skulking underneath the road bridge) and the first ducklings I have seen in Eastville Park this season (one pair of mallards with ten ducklings).

The trees are beginning to look their best.
