Walking through another gloomy, misty and dull morning, we headed out to Straw's Bridge again. As usual, the lake was a melting pot of wildfowl of varying types. Mallards, Mute Swans, Canada Geese, Tufted Ducks, Coots, A Cormorant, Pochards and a few 'domestic' farmyard ducks were competing among themselves for the prize for most vocal bird on the lake. The winners however, were the Black-headed Gulls - they always win the prize for making a noise. When an elderly couple arrived with quantities of bread with which to feed the birds, things became frenzied.
