We mentioned the Turnstones in a previous post, and by now many of you will have seen them scurrying along the foreshore in the park. Well, over the past couple of weeks the number of resident Turnstones has increased and in the picture, you can see a few on the shoreline doing their signature move – turning stones.

They have been joined just offshore by a number of other winter migrants, possibly greylag geese? If you can identify these lovely birds, then let us know!

This gaggle of them, eighteen in number, were seen busily swimming around in circles occasionally dipping their heads in the water to grab a tasty morsel.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled over the winter for more rare visitors to our beautiful park.
