Parklife! 28 January 2020

Today I spent a little bit of time in Christchurch Park in Ipswich. Let's be honest, it's the only place there worth visiting!
In the early morning sun the Tawny Owl that seems to have replaced 'Mabel' in using the same roosting tree/hole was showing very nicely. She has been dubbed Mabel mk2!
Down on Wilderness Pond I found the escaped drake Hooded Merganser (bearing a bright green plastic ring on it's left leg) together with 8 Mandarins (5 males/3 females) but this winter there don't appear to be any Goosanders. A Brown Rat was kicking about and a little later on a Grey Wagtail was at the Waterfront on the opposite side of town.
