This and that.. just a very few from Warnham & Pulborough Brooks

Went to Warnham first.. very quiet compared to my last visit..

This Wood Pigeon posed..




and good to see a Gatekeeper..

Did some shopping and home for a bite to eat .. thought I'd have a visit to Pulborough to look for flutters

Was surprised to see cattle where birds normally feed swim etc..  A few lapwings were there..

Lillies in the top pond

and in the zigzags.. a few Gatekeepers....


I didn't walk far today; the sun went, the black clouds gathered, the wind got up and it started drizzling - so home I went.

Warnham LNR with fishing Kingfishers and Great Crested Grebes

I went to Warnham this p.m. for some fresh air and was rewarded with seeing two Kingfishers (at the same time) with one of them fishing.

To start the Grey Wagtail was posing..



and at last a flutter.. Red Admiral


The family of 4 Mute Swan Cygnet are growing up... good to see..

and then from the Heron Hide - a posing Kingfisher

who went fishing!!






The 3 Great Creted Grebe chicks are getting bigger but still being fed my Mum or Dad




Was good to get out for a bit and great to meet Marcia and Dave Gain.. no doubt we'll bump into each other again afore too long :)

Kelmarsh Hall .. on the way home

Sadly all good things come to an end.... a wonderful week away in the Lake District - even the weather was kind!! but as we left today it was raining..

We packed the car, had breaky and then headed off on the journey back.  Stopped for petrol and a change of drivers then we stopped at Kelmarsh Hall.. had a scone for lunch... very good.. and then walked around the very pretty and relaxed garden.

Mr Ponders is a 'friend' of Kate - the Visitor Services & Volunteer Co-ordinator at Kelmarsh and it was good to meet her when we arrived..
