I'd been meaning to visit Southwater Country Park, close by me, for sometime now and today I went off for a walk.
It's a bit lake which supports boating activities. There's also a quarry lake which I didn't have time for today - so bookmarked for the next visit.
The birds life - saw a small flock of Long-tailed Tits. On the jetty were a family group of 2 Adult Mute Swans and their 4 cygnets; the four youngsters were having flying lessons from one end of the lake to the other. One lone Cormorant which flew off before long and the numerous Black-headed gulls and Coots. And just 2 Mallards.
You can walk all around the lake.. so I did.
