The hot spell continues. Linda visited from Chichester, had a beach walk, looked for the Plovers and strolled round Meersbrook Park. A Mallard female had eight chicks, other females attacked when they came close. Two coots are nesting, a male gave the nesting female some leaves which she placed then a swan came along. The male coot hissed and eventually attacked the swan’s rear end, the swan retaliated half heartedly then appeared to vent its frustration by pecking the woodwork at the lakeside. Linda reintroduced us to a favourite singer Judie Tzuke.
