A pair of Kingfishers zooming over the big pond today. Two reports of a muntjac fawn last week. A Robin came and sat on my knee during a work-party tea break.
Fresh sunny morning after big stormy rains last night: a group of little birds tweeting and twittering in a thicket bare of leaves between the pond and the central lake: a blue tit flew out, then about six long tailed tits, then I noticed a tree creeper, pecking its way up a vertical willow stem, then a second treecreeper at the same time, making its way up the next willow trunk; then at the bottom of the thicket a goldcrest. A post-storm small-bird bonanza, all in the same small willow and scrub thicket! A beautiful shining, twittering Trap Grounds morning.
The Swan Family, with all five cygnets, feeding and sunning on the lake this afternoon. The feathers of four of the young are showing signs of turning white already. And by the way, the other (sunny) day I saw a full size large dragonfly! Nov 6th. I've never seen a dragonfly in November before...
Kingfisher seen twice this week on Swan Pond.
