Another walk around Rufford

Steve and I had another walk around Rufford a couple of weeks ago in the hope of spotting that kingfisher again. It was a bright Frosty morning so we donned our thick coats and set off. Here are a few snaps...
 The Kingfisher wasn't there, but a Heron was
 So were these black headed gulls
 This is the view from the bridge and at the foot of that big tree was where I saw the kingfisher last time
 Here is a view down the lake to the Mill where there is a cafe and a shop selling outdoor clothing
 The Greylag Geese were enjoying the sunshine...
 This little fellow was gorging himself on the bird food!


 I had taken some bird food with me and found a convenient fence post near the Ice House. The birds are used to people feeding them here it seems...
 especially the blackbirds and robins
 The shaft of sun picked them out beautifully...
Then we walked back to the car. It looks like mid afternoon, but it was only about midday when we left.
Hope you enjoyed the stroll. Lets hope for some more bright frosty mornings soon.
Thanks for looking!

  2. These photos of the birds certainly made up for not seeing the kingfisher again Sally. Lots of frost here too but not any fog (I'm glad to say), the sun is even showing it's face.
