Not seen as many fish for years......on the ARROW looking down from the smaller of the two bridges near where you view the Egrets nest....if some other quieter places have as many then should be Kingfishers around.

A solitary Tufted Duck on the lake just before 8 this morning.
I haven't spotted the Little Egrets for a couple of weeks, so they've either moved on or I'm not looking in the right places..

FINALLY.......1st time spot of Kingy at Arrow Valley....the river was running a bit high and he was on the North shore in the low trees.....followed it along the edge but never got a clear sighting....lost him around the bridges area on the river.Looked again on the river for some time and when I got back to the pool he was near the Boat club and then shot across to the island.....strangely there was not a lot around today....a few Cormorant and 1 million Robins...lol

Surprised noone else has posted a picture of the bird.

I also got some uninspirational video showing the bird up close, but relaxed, as joggers, dog walkers and other park users continually passed by.

Shelduck at Arrow Valley this morning.
An adult, female Shelduck was at the lake this morning from first light until flying off in a North Westerly direction at 08.25hrs. Not sure if this is a first??
I managed to get a few shots and have posted them on www.ukbirders.com
Not the best of quality as I was chasing it around for some time with a 150-600mm lens (hand held)!

Goldeneye still present this morning (08.00) near Duck Feeding Area. Unfortunately, looks like it has a damaged left wing so may become resident. Still diving OK so able to feed.
