Not what I had planned.

Well everything I thought I was going do today as I pulled out of the car park didn't happen. And I'm not sure why!!

I sort of arrived at Pulborough Brooks which surprised me as my birding lens was in my bedroom. I was tempted therefore not to take a camera but I took the 70-300 along.

It was a bit quiet bird wise despite Nightingales singing deep in bushes.







And then I came across these chaps....




Interloper!

















I saw this chap on a village pond....


755 St George, West Grinstead









So where to now? The prefered option didn't open til 2 and it was 12:15 so onto Parham House.

St Peter's is in the park.....






... of the rather fine Parham House


and so for a tour of the gardens....














Small Copper

One of those days when you wanted to turn right and the car turned left eh!

I've never seen so many deer at Pulborough before - nice pics of them. The flying egret is nice!

And some very familiar sights of Parham! Nice pictures all.

Really enjoyed sharing your day Pete, and the pictures.
That was a lot of deer all out together; great sight. Good capture of the Little Egret too.

You can tuck that skull plaque away for me, lol. I really like that fountain beside the bench. The photos are wonderful once again Pete. I'm enjoying your holiday.
