A stroll

I didn't fancy going far today I wandered over the Forest again this morning.

Lots of birds singing including Chiffchaff's.

There were 6 Grebes on the lake and over the lake were loads of Swallow and one Sand Martin!

I stopped at the lake Cafe for a cuppa and a Sandwich. I walked to a bench over looking the lake. The Grebes danced tantalisngly at the other side of the lake. One Canada Geese with a nest chased off two others and just as my sarnie was heading towards my mouth a Chiffy perched up nearby - hey ho.

Still as I sat there this Grebe came close enough

The two geese flew off

And Mrs Mallard thought if I creep up I might get a bit of sarnie.

Now if I pose and smile at him....

a pleasant stroll.

Very bold at times, Mallards.
Hope you shared your sarnie Pete ;)

Just catching up on some blogs. Nice to see some signs of spring down south. We still have snow on the hills. Roll on spring. Like the mallard photos.
