This blog is about all forms of wildlife I record around North Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes in particular. My main interests for 2012 will be looking for anything I've not seen before.

Linford Lakes at lunch time

A grey, drizzly visit today, looked good for grounded warblers etc.
First up of note was Blackhorse Lake on the road in, this held 20+ Common Tern and 50+ hirundines hawking over the lake.
Along the paths into the main reserve 3+ Chiff Chaffs together and a Goldcrest. 1 Large and 2 much smaller Grass Snakes noted.
From Near Hide everything was flushed off the bund twice but all I could pin point as the culprit was a Crow pecking into something. 2 Swifts and 45+ House Martins were above the lakes. The rest of the bund was quiet. Back on the paths, 4 male Blackcaps were the pick of the ID warblers, lots of other flocks moving around the reserve.

I did stop off at CMK before work this morning. Only thing of note was wet binoculars.
