I picked Nic up at 8 (and she would like it noted she was early!) and off we headed to the Lodge. It was very quiet (people wise) but the birds were singing. The normal park and garden birds, a few rabbits and lots of squirrels!
A stroll around the garden also through up the first butterfly of the day.
And so to Wimpole Hall. It was packed, we decided to beat the rush and have an early lunch. The weather was stunning, will someone confirm that this is a bank holiday in England?
The Wimpole cat.
Other butterflies seen were a white, Brimstone and an Orange Tip. Lots of Chiffchaff singing.
As the resaurant was full we passed on a cup of tea and indulged in an Ice Cream. Lovely day and lovely company. Even if she did drag me to the dSLR shop opposite her house :(
