Birds in the park
Many birds visit the park but the ducks and geese are permanent residents and can be seen most mornings having a constitutional stroll over breakfast.
In recent times the ducks have all but vanished.
We hope that they have not been snatched for a meal and instead have used the wet conditions to find other pondage.
