Here's something you don't see every day!

 I went down to Northumberland Park today and Tom was photographing an unusual beast sunning itself in the pond. A Red-eared Terrapin!

One thing we didn't see was the Mandarin Duck. It was there last night displaying to a Mallard. Apparently it comes and goes so hopefully it will return. It's very tame so defo an escapee. It probably took flight when a council operative turned up with a petrol leaf blower. I did, it's not only a complete waste of time (leaves are blown back by the wind seconds later), but incredibly loud.

The Terrapin was joined by a very obliging Grey Wagtail.
