The grebe have had us all guessing this week first there were two then four and at one point 5 grebes on the lake yesterday only two could be seen. They keep diving and bringing up weed. They can be nasty little things when a duck get in the way they charge with their very sharp pointed beaks like a torpedo

The moorhen is also send everyone off  the island so it look like its breading time for them

Surprisingly for this time of year there are a lot of lady birds about and as you can see so are the green fly's

Even the humble pigeon is out and about and very tame coming down for the bread and seed

There ahs been a lot of work done this week by all the bridges to stop the shear drops leading to them as tons of top soil has been used to make the bank safe. I think clay would have been better with a bit of top soil

The activity is partly due to the lottery visiting next week about a future grant to finish the paths etc. So lets hope we get it  but it will be to late for this year as the bid doesnt go in until June. Also this week the cafe has been broken into at night if you saw anything let the Police know
