Cassiobury Park - 14.4.11

2 Photos of the juv Stock Dove and a Fox at Hilfield that looks like it has spent too much time in the sun!!

The Mandarin pair flew in onto the river early morning and a Herring Gull was the first sighting in a while. At 11.30 2 Waxwings flew into the top of a large Oak next to the tennis courts and after 2-3 minutes flew off into the Horse Chestnuts behind the bowls club. Just before lunch a workmate of mine rescued a pigeon/dove from a Carrion Crow and when I had a looked I found it to be a juv Stock Dove. I let it relax before releasing it into a group of shrubs but it was still there an hour later but hopefully it'll be ok?! A pair of Coal Tits were feeding in back gardens backing onto the tennis courts and after yesterdays comment that Collared Doves not being overly common in the park I only went and found a pair nest building!!

After work I popped to Hilfield Reservoir. In with around 40 Sand Martins were 2+ Swallows and 2+ House Martins which were a year tick.
