5 or 6 tufted duck on the lake with 2 pochard and at least 3 great created grebe. A jay was in the arboretum with at least one nuthatch. A kingfisher was in the bushes on the path to the back road, diving into pools at the side of the path. 

The aerial walkway feeder was particularly busy with good numbers of blue, great and coal tit, about 20 chaffinches on the ground picking up fallen seed with 2 fat squirrels, at least 2 nuthatches, 2 pairs of bullfinches showing extremely well, and singles of marsh tit and great spotted woodpecker.
