A day out in the Easter Sun.

It's Good Friday and as I laid in bed this morning and the weather forecast said that East Anglia would be nice so I hopped out of bed and headed out!

I decided to see if there were Stone-curlews back at Weeting Heath (with a quick stop at Walker's Snack Bar), they may have been but I couldn't find any! Hey ho.

I decided to pop into Lynford Arboetum, I wasn't looking for Hawfinches but to see if any winter finch flocks were about, there weren't any! Still loads of butterflies, Orange Tip, Peacock and LOADS of brilliant yellow Brimstones. A little Grebe on the lake and a few photos.
















Not a great photo, he was shy!


And so on to Oxburgh Hall. The sun was shining down so instead of joining the queue I went to the snack bar bought a drink and read a bit in the sun - lovely.








A kingfisher zipped through. Lovely sight!













I then went back to the snack bar to soak up more sun and have a rather decent Ham Sandwich. Read a fair bit more of my book, this is the life.

The traffic on the way back was awful luckily in the opposite direction. I assume it was all the folks deciding Europe was too expensive, lets hope they all head back soon so the roads are quieter !

Some good pictures there. The House reflected in the water is very calming and I love the tree "sculpture".

I can feel the sun beating down and I'm green about those blue skies you had. Not the same down my way.
