For once an early start and I was over the Forest at around 7:15. There was lots of birdsong which was good to here.
There were lots of Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Green Woodpeckers and Nuthatches.
On the lake were a couple of male Wigeon and this Barnacle Goose.
There were also 4 Great Crested Grebes on the lake.
There are a couple of houses in the Forest.
So time for a cup of tea and a bacon sarnie!!
And so to Wimpole Hall...
We arrived in time for lunch which was a lump of cake :D The triple berry was nice !
Quite a few Snowdrops about....
A tour of the house....
Out into the garden.
Not sure why this little bear is here! Still it has a blanket!
There were a few bumbles about and a number of ladybirds.
Stopped of at the restaurant/cafe for a cuppa and a cheese scone. Lots of birds flitting about.
A lovely February day with a hint of Spring because as we were driving along there was a baby lamb in a field with Mum!
