I met up with Trish at Barnes this morning. As usual we walked around one side and then back via the cafe and on to the side part of which has the collection.
At the cafe I had intended to have a cup of tea (it was 11:30) but Trish was keen on brunch so I joined her.
Birds seen? well it was a bit quiet but highlights included Little and Great Crested Grebe, Green Woodpecker, Siskin, Snipe, Stonechat and Goldcrest. The Bittern didn't show to us and we never saw the Jack Snipe hey ho.
The light wasn't ideal but here is a mix of wild and collection birds.
