Yarrow Valley Park 31.8.11

The birds were much more vocal today. A large mixed tit flock was making its way along the river and around Top Lodge and contained good numbers of Blue, Great, Coal and LT Tit, plus Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler.
The pair of GC Grebes with their well grown youngster were on Big Lodge as was the pair of Mute Swan and 2 cygnets. The sub-adult swan was still on Top Lodge as was the regular Grey Heron. Three Swallows flew over.
Other wildlife included Brown Hawker dragonfly and Grey Squirrel
