Last Saturday , I said that one of the Corvids I saw when they all got up in the air , was larger , and could have been a Raven . Well , today I was talking to another birder at the hedge who lives within sight of Leith Hill tower , and he told me that there have been a pair of Ravens in the area for the last 2/3 years , so it could have been one of them last week .
He also mentioned that for the last couple of weeks , there has been an Osprey seen regularly in the area . I asked if there were any lakes around , and he confirmed that there was a trout fishery the other side of the tower , and that was where most sightings occurred .
Needlessly to say , I didn't get a sighting today , but perhaps next week ?

I left for the Common , and decided to pop into Keston Ponds on the way . Many more Mallards on the ponds now , but just one pair of Mandarins on view . Two Canada Geese , who have been missing on the last couple of visits , have returned . In the morning sunshine , one female Mallard had her head down , but one eye on me at the same time .

This is just one small area of the outfield which must contain hundreds and hundreds of Wax Caps .
