Sheffield Park.. and surprisingly in sunshine!!

Headed off for Sheffield Park this morning.. bit later than usual but no problem parking given it's half term.

Had a wander... sadly the Wood Walk was shut as very water logged..  it was rather water logged in various places.. thank goodness for waterproof shoes!!

The sun shone and it was comparatively 'warm'





Hard to beat the sound of a Robin in full song!!








A tree stump which bees were colonising





A rather water-logged cricket pitch
















Lunch time.. scone was a good flavour.. but a little drier than I would like.. not the usual standard for Sheffield Park.

and then another wander









A lovely wander in warm sunshine... seems it's not going to last but good to have it though.

Seems like a very pleasant excursion with lots to keep you interested. I guess the robins are in full courtship mode now. Oh what hormones will do!

Good to be out and walking... Robins evident in pairs or fighting... as were the Mallards. And generally, great to have more birdsong now including the return of the dawn chorus!
