I got up nice and early this morning and went over the Forest.
I got a good start with a Little Owl. Green Woodies were very vocal and I saw a number of these and Great Spots. Once again there were good numbers of Bullfinches and I also came across a Marsh Tit.
The lake had the usual suspects. Lots of Mallards, Black Headed Gulls, Tufties, Gadwall, Coots, Mooorhens and a few Teal and Pochard. Also 2 Great Crested Grebe.
On my way back I popped into St Mary the Virgin Hatfield Broad Oak, I've visited many times. What you see today is the nave of the old Priory Church which explains the truncated look.
I'm not a religious person but at one point I stopped and gave a simple prayer for Mum.
Then went to Dad's for dinner.
