Life on the lake today, well, checking my notes i can say: Swans a pair, mallards, so many, widgeon a few, one shoveler i viewed too. Then came the geese, a long way from home, Canada in fact, so cold, Lincoln, England, much warmer, if you're a goose. Canada geese, yep named after their country, -10 C, I believe. Next on my list, coots, a good few. A bit further on, a moorhen or two. In the lake of life, there are plenty, I could name them all, but for the records, I didn’t see any. Having dealt with the fauna next the lake flora, and there in one corner some reeds. Four hours of looking, time now is talking, “You’ve done your days recording, now get yourself home for some tea. So without looking back, I’m off down the track, heading home for a snack, and a nice cup of hot tea.
