Despite carrying out a circuit of the paddocks at Horton Country Park mid morning and another visit to the Stew Pond (Epsom Common) this afternoon I didn't log anything new. However many of the local residents including Wren, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Great Tit, Nuthatch, Parakeet, Jackdaw and Green Woodpecker plus numerous Chiffchaffs and a few skulking Blackcaps were very vocal.
Chiffchaff always perching where a clear cut view is impossible.
Cormorant once again defeating the speed setting on the camera!
In a grassy patch within the woodland I spotted Mr. and Mrs. Mandarin out for a quiet stroll together.
Once again the Long-tailed Tit only provided a side on view.
Great Tit blasting out its usual song.
Just before reaching the car park I noticed that the pair of Mandarin Ducks were not too keen on the presence of another male. There was a bit of posturing before the interloper decided to waddle away into the undergrowth and I returned home without any new sightings. Maybe something will turn up somewhere later this week. FAB.
