Warnham... rather stormy!!

I'd been out this morning and part of this was a visit to Tesco's.  It was heaving with people so I abandoned that idea and came home  The weather was dreadful.

After lunch the rain stopped and the sun came out as forecast.  So getting a bit stir crazy I headed of to Warnham.. there were activities for children and glad to say with the sun, attendance was picking up.

There was a large Terrapin in the lake.. not a welcome visitor.  The 3 Great Crested Grebe chicks were still about and 3 adults.

Large Lady Bird - for the children :)

and the sun went, and the black clouds gathered!!

As I got near the exit, it tipped it down in stair rods.  There was a guy selling binoculars and scope under an awning.. I dived under that until it stopped.

This is the view over the lake... and

look in the opposite direction - seems like a different place altogether.

I cut my losses and headed off home - where the roads were bone dry and it had escaped the showers!!
