Caldecotte Lake bird galore

As we found some time to play we visited the southern Caldecotte Lake in Milton Keynes to feed the ducks, geese and gulls. That is always a fun for a little girl. In the morning Andi and me was watching the record number of Greater Scaup. Two males and 6 female-like bird was present at the western bank of the south lake. It was the 72nd species for this year when it comes to the seen species only (I heard a Tawny Owl calling next to the Freeman Pre-School last night at 1AM).

In the late afternoon birding was not the main target but to have some close encounters for Kea with the geese and gulls. It was fun and birds obviously enjoyed it as well. Some immature Mew Gulls, European Herring Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gulls came rather close allowing nice views.

Some images of the galore was taken by an iPhone 4s:
