Wollaton Park

We had a cheap (free bus pass!) day out at Wollaton Park today. On entering the park via a tree lined drive we saw several small birds  but this fluffy nuthatch topped the bill.

We saw male & female black-caps but only managed to photograph the male.

The female is similar but has a rusty red rather than black cap.

Finally we were surprised to see a heronry on the island in the lake.

I counted about eight nests and what looked like a large number of youngsters.

On Saturday (22nd)  caught this great tit having a sunbathe in the garden.
