It was to visit the visitor centre in Bushy Park today to find out more info. that set me off on my walk. The sun was glimpsed, albeit too briefly, and then things went back to uniform grey.
A Black Headed Gull was calling very noisily as it watched from its high perch.
I wandered through the Woodland Gardens and, much to my delight, found a small clump of snowdrops in flower. Not quite opened up yet but nonetheless - snowdrops!!
And further along, a Camellia was in flower - I've seen this one before but it's still producing several flower buds.
Not a long walk and when the parking charges come in..... then it may be even shorter :(
