Friday 6th October

Carline Thistle. Different!

Juvenile Mute Swans spreading their wings.

Goldfinches among the hawthorn berries.

Windy day. Flock of very nervous Pochard still around. Young swans are all flying around the marsh. Makes it impossible to tell which family they are from. Noticed that the council have cleaned up the mess from the recycling plant, but they hav'nt repaired the hole in the fence, so no doubt it will all return!
