Report. R.Lane. 26th May 2010

"Only 'items' I could find today were at Par B.Pond ! Not very exciting at that. Firstly there was a juvenile Herring Gull constantly worrying it's parent (?) for food. Suddenly the adult (male) jumped on the juvs' back and attempted to mate with it ! At least it stopped the youngster nagging !
Secondly, among the goose flock I spotted the 2 x Pinkfeet geese, STILL in the area thenThere were also numerous gosling broods, but I fear a high predation rate since most are newly born each day it seems.
Thirdly, was looking closely at each of the few Swallows (hoping for a Red-rumped !), when some-thing different did appear ! It turned out to be a single Dunlin, come for a fresh-water wash only yards from the car, the best hide in the business !"

Thanks for the report Roger.
I do agree with you about the car hide...most birds are use to a car and do not seem to be bothered by the close proximity.
