A friend of mine rang me this morning and suggested, as the sun was shining, that we went for a walk - excellent idea so we went off to Bushey Park. The sun was not only shining but was warm!! Although I had my camera, the emphasis was on walking and doing the cardiovascular bit to get the circulation going etc. etc.
However, the sun on a couple of coots was just too hard to resist:
On one of the ponds in the Woodland Gardens a couple of Egyptian Geese swam towards us...
And we came across this group of Red Deer stags who were enjoying a doze and being lazy in the warm sunshine
And my first camelia of the year
The level of water in the streams and ponds was markedly high. I've never seen water gushing out of the pipes (from the streams) with the force of today.
An enjoyable walk with some good exercise and great company. Thank you IHD.
