Fleet Pond ~ 20th September ~

A quick visit to the pond yielded very little unfortunately. The two usual Yellow Legged Gulls were although right in the middle of the lake, as usual! It is presumed they are an Adult and 3CY, but it is so difficult to tell with these birds! Also on the water was a lone Shoveler which is the first I've seen on the lake for over a year! In Sandy Bay there was a nice Grey Wagtail. However the highlight of the walk was watching a female Kingfisher  we saw her on 2 or 3 occasions and on one of these occasions she perched around 40 metres away. By the time we got closer, she had flown but still a fabulous find!
