Walked round the lakes with Zoe this afternoon. No sign of the pair of Egyptian geese on the large lake. Zoe thinks they must be building a nest somewhere. Also no sign of the 5-7 cormorants that were there up until last weekend. This winter, cormorants have been more common on the Reading University lakes than they have been at Farnborough North. A few years ago it was the other way round.
The shoveller ducks were still present. The warm weather hasn't deceived them into moving back north, which is just as well as another cold spell is forecast for the middle of next week.
