Glorious sunshine for a potter at Petworth NT..

The sun was shining but forecast not good.. so I headed off to be a Petworth for when it opened.

It was really warm in the sun for February.... So I decided a longer walk was needed.

I started down by the lake and, for a change, walked around the entire lake in an anti-clockwise direction... lots of birds about on the water..

Seem to be 2 pairs of Egyptian Geese... unless anyone knows differently.

Mallards flew as a family with bread.. arrived!

Just a lone Greylag in amongst all the Canada Geee

A flock of what I thought to be geese took off... then I discovered they were Shovellers... very nice!

and by now is was lunchtime.. or to be more precise.. 'sconch'-time... and a very nice fruit scone it was indeed - meriting a health 4/5 out of 5 .... a consistently good scone at Petworth :D

and Ponders approved but didn't indulge :D

What a glorious day it was too... warm in the sun... and I actually abandoned my gloves.  Just lovely having Petworth as my local.....
