South Norwood CP

Visited South Norwood Country Park today, this little green oasis is situated on the outskirts of croydon and provides a much needed refuge for the local wildlife.
The lake has a good mixture of species from the common Mallards to the more exotic Egyptian Geese along with seven Goslings at present, also Tufted Duck, Coot, Moorhen, Little Grebe and many others also present in numbers. There are four viewing platforms for the visitor to enjoy watching the varied birds from although some are in need of repair and occasionally you might be joined by the resident Brown Rats. But if you don't mind this then you can spend a pleasurable hour wandering around the lake perimeter, and if you are into photography you can capture some good Images as the birds fly around (see below)

 After visiting the lake continue your walk around the perimeter on good paths suitable for the disabled visitor keeping your eyes open for Hunting Kestrel and various songbirds as you go towards the visitor centre and the refreshments.
This park is well worth a visit whether you are interested in wildlife or simply looking to spend an afternoon with the family.
