Virtually every tree in the place had a very active Goldfinch and that the southern edge there was a flock of 15 or 20 of these chasing each other around the bushes.
Yes I know its not exactly a bird but I have not seen many frogs about so thought I would share the image. I'm no expert on these things but I think its a Common Frog.
A couple of Sandpipers were feeding around the edge of the lake though all were very difficult to get anywhere close to. They were also very noisy.
I only spotted a single pair of Blackbirds at the lake, they were close to a small group of houses at the southern end and seemed to be pretty settled in that spot.
I was watching a flock of around 35 to 40 Canada Geese who were feeding by the lakeside when I thought to myself, look closely, there might be something else in the flock. Sure enough a pair of Greylag Geese were right in the middle.
A small breakaway group of Canada Geese at the north end of the lake.
