Rawcliffe Lake

Just an update for the last couple of weeks, well after the Great Crested Grebe had managed to attract a mate last week they had both then disappeared at the start of this week, one, I presume the original bird, had returned mid-week. The comings and goings of Goosanders continue as at other sites in the York area and after a gap of a week or more three females had returned at the beginning of the week with up to 15 present again by the end of the week including five drakes also a pair of Tufted Ducks were present on Wednesday, they used to winter in small numbers along with Pochard many years ago but have become irregular visitors these days. Nothing much else happening although the Pigeons and Doves got a shock when a female Sparrowhawk dived into the large conifer at the north-eastern corner, she sat there for a couple of minutes before carrying on her way.
