After visiting the gallery, I went for a lovely walk around the house to look at the Natural History museum, which was fascinating. I then went for a walk around the lake at Wollaton, a little of the way round I heard a Green Woodpecker calling, I told my dad, I went in search for it, by tracking its call. Eventually one flew past me while calling, it was a Green Woodpecker. I was so please to have seen one because I hadn't seen one for many years.
The Green Woodpeckers call is so distinctive, it sounds like someone laughing, have a listen on the RSPBs website:
At Wollaton Park there are herds of Red Deer and Fallow Deer which are allowed to roam wild. I did manage to get a few pictures, but they were taken on my dads camera, which I couldn't use very well.
Throughout the lovely walk, I heard many Green Woodpeckers, and Chiffchaffs. There were many Coots fighting and courting. On the walk I was accompanied by lovely bird song, from Robins, Blue Tits, Chiffchaffs, Blackbirds. Also on the way round were Treecreepers, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers communicating through drumming to one another, and a Nuthatch calling.
I'd would recommend anyone going to Wollaton Hall and Park to have a walk around the lake, if they are in the vicinity.
