Poole park lake this morning, this lake is part of the park and is only separated from Poole harbour by a railway line. Apart from the usual ducks and Geese there are 3 pairs ofthe over wintering Red Breasted Mergansers and Goldeneye, one drake Merganser came close to the path giving me the closest view I have had there. They will soon be flying up North to breed. Goldeneye. Female Goldeneye. One of nearly a hundred Egrets in Poole harbour area.
