Rye Meads

I had a wander to Rye Meads this afternoon.

Highlights? Lots of Snipe, Sparrowhawk and a couple of Water Vole. I'm told there was a Jack Snipe but without a scope I had zero chance of spotting it as it was a way out apparently.

A few pics

Ah the humble Robin!

This Snipe was reasonably close

Male and Female Wigeon!

I've had a cold... I know only a cold but it has drained me of a bit of energy. Luckily with the exception of a bunged up nose I'm feeling much more me today.

I didn't exactly rush out of bed this morning but I made my way to Flatford

arriving in time for tea and ....

Honey & Walnut Scone..... how I have missed thee....

There are numerous signs exhorting people to put dogs on leads but one walked straight through the herd with her dog running on a head.... makes so angry!!!

a nice stroll!!

Day 9 - Bologna

Well typical the last day and the sun comes out to play! The centre of the city was closed to traffic which gave it a much nicer vibe.

You can climb to the top of this, and a lot of people were.... we passed!!

We picked our bags up from the hotel and got a cab to the airport.
