Birds, Damsels, Flowers oh and Mr Punch

Uhm well I had intended to head to Wicken Fen and then either Anglessey Abbey or Wimpole Hall.

As it was I set off early and arrived at Hatfield Forest.

It was looking rather attractive.






There were 3 Grebe chicks on the lake, as well as some Greylag and coot chicks. The Terns look like they may have eggs.










A young Long Tailed Tit


I then went to Audley End (loads of photos of the house on the blog). They had a Victorian theme day.










Flying in....



Wait for me Mum!



That's the way to do it...















Right I've consulted the book and i'm saying Azure Damselfly.

What a great selection of photos. I love the ones of the people in costume at Audley End and the puppets as well. Also thought the flowers, buds, etc. were excellent.

Wow, a real life Punch and Judy. I've never seen one - what a great 'tick'!
