The Canal & Powke Lane POS

Well I manged to get out for 30 minutes yesterday, work was doing my head in, so I managed to get outside whilst the sun was out (rare event these days!)
So I just walked down the end of the road and in to the trees behind the Powke Lane POS (Public Open Space) and hung around for 10 minutes in a clearing, there was lots of song about but difficult to spot now that the trees have leaves.
Anyway in the trees as you can imagine was the usual culprits, Gt/Blue Tit, Blackbird, House Sparrow, Magpie & Woodpigeon, but then picked out a couple of firsts for the year here, Chiffchaff and Blackcap, managed a shot of the Chiffchaff for the record:
Then a couple of Mallard went over the top:
So at this point came out the trees and walked around the edge of the POS and picked up a male Bullfinch. I carried on to the short stretch of canal back towards home, as you can guess, there were Canada Geese aplenty, Coot and Moorhen, with a fair few LBB Gulls swooping around. One Goose on its nest:
Then a very sad looking Goose indeed:
Anyway couldn't hang around, saw a couple of Goldfinches, Robin and loads of House Sparrows on the way back
Don't see may sparrows on blogs!
