Walking round this suburban lake during the winter months can be very entertaining for many reasons. The main performers providing the entertainment are of course our feathered friends, the local avian residents. The variety of birds here may be common but are of no less interest for that.
Judging by the shot below it seems that size is relevant, with the small gulls waiting patiently and hopefully for a share of the fare on offer.
The entertainment is not only in the shape, colour and behaviour of the birds – it also comes in the form of sound. Listen to the sound clip below for a taste of the calls and conversations in the bird community at the lakeside.

The audio add a very important layer to this post. In a sense, it comes to life with the calls of those birds. It’s like hearing them having a conversation 🙂
Thanks Allysse, I couldn’t agree more. I enjoyed your recordings I Kew this morning. Sorry if I didn’t comment at the time.
