A hazy morning with a temperature of 16°C as I arrived at Harold Park where I headed for the lake.As I approached the lake I could see in the distance a pair of Mute Swans(Tag yellow 468) with young Cygnets, as I got closer I was able to count seven of them.Others here included Tufted Duck, Coots with four nests,Canadas, GC Grebe and a Mistle Thrush.
A quick visit to Park Dam where a pair of Coots with five chicks which had to make a quick exit from their nest as a Carrion Crow came in trying to nab one for breakfast.There were also three GC Grebes,Tufted Duck and Sand Martin above the water.
