I moved onto Pickering Park. It has a very similar feel to East Park: large grassy expanses ideal for loafing gulls and grazing geese, a section with conifers and large mature trees all around. There is an aviary, which looked abandoned. I walked around the perimeter of the park and by the lake, which has some islands. Overall 33 species for the day.
A Magpie making the best of the winter sun.
Tufted duck stretching.
One of two Mistle Thrushes near the lake.
The male of the pair of swans, with yellow ring 841. I will update if I find where it was ringed.
The pair of Mute Swans, the female is of the Polish variety, with pale feet.
A portrait of the male.
There were at least 3 Goosanders in Pickering Park, 2 males and 1 female. I didn't get too close as I didn't want to spook them.
