Met a very good friend of my today at RHS Wisley. Some of the areas were inaccessible as a new tarmac path was being laid but we had a pleasant wander....
Other areas had been cleared in anticipation of the start of building work for a new visitor entrance which is due for completion in 2018. Plants having been moved to other places in anticipation.
There's to be a lighting display and the 'flower' lights for the Christmas Glow event were much in evidence... they are very large.. I didn't take pictures of many of them.. not really sure about the size of these.... just my opinion.
So we just had a wander
- we also visited the Orchard area where say many Fieldfares and Mistle Thrushes... lovely to see so many of them... no pics.... flying too fast around the trees and too high.
A small flock of Long-tailed Tits was good to see...
Walked around the Pinetum and along the river back to the cafe for a sandwich for lunch.
Mr Mallard was patrolling the outside seating area of the cafe..
and back out through the visitor entrance.
Lovely stroll in the winter sunlight..
