I failed to see the reported Mandarin Ducks and Rose Ringed Parakeets on my trip to Wollaton Park this morning (16/03) but a roosting Tawny Owl and two Treecreepers were more than adequate substitutes.
This could well be the bird that I saw occupying the same daytime roost in February 2018. I took many shots hoping for one with open eyes but without success
It is difficult to get a clear shot of a Treecreeper as they are such fast movers but today two of them obliged. This is the first time I have seen one other than on a tree but the right hand example was clearly finding plenty to eat in the crevices of the park’s ancient boundary wall.
The presence of male and female Red Crested Pochard holds out the possibility of some RCP ducklings in the coming weeks!
