My recent reflective stroll along the Wey Navigation from Bowyers Lock to Send Bridge was not over blessed with wildlife sightings probably because I didn't start early enough! Quite a few Mallards patrolling the water and corvids flying around included Crows, Jackdaws and Magpies. Robin, Wren, Blackbird and a Mistle Thrush made brief appearances. I also listened to and watched a party of Long-tailed Tits foraging through the pathway foliage together with Blue and Great Tits.
Common Buzzard seen perched a quater of a mile away. (Original shot cropped)
A pair of Cormorants taking a rest some distance away.
Plenty of Alder fruits but no Siskins (I did hear Goldfinches.)
Young Mute Swan preening.
In the distance (half a mile away) I heard the skwarking calls of Rose-ringed Parakeets as they continually circled around a Common Buzzard
A long distance shot as the Parakeets flew away.
A second Buzzard was beig harrassed by a Crow.
One of the many Mallard enjoying the peaceful waterway. FAB.
