Fleet Pond ~ 16th October ~

Another trip to Fleet Pond today was a little disappointing in bird terms with highlights being the 2 usual Yellow Legged Gulls, a Kingfisher and 2 Grey Wagtail. Rather surprising was an unusually tame Great Crested Grebe. The bird was feting at times just 4-5 feet away from the pontoon, completely oblivious to my presence. The bird looked reasonably healthy although its bill was a rather unusual shade of pink!

Half term is coming soon, looking forward to a couple of birding trips then :)
