One sunny afternoon this week we headed for Redesmere, which is a large lake,very near us.
There is a sailing club there, and as it was a very breezy day, the little boats soon came out.
But the big attraction there are the water fowl. After a putting up with a dodgy and potholed parking spot, the Council has made it into a very much better spot for spectators, and a great deal safer
Lots of people come with bags of bread to feed the various birds, there is plenty of room for those that feed the birds, the photographers and the children.
There is no doubt at all as to who are the big greedy ones! The swans always push forward, but the gulls are pretty good at catching stuff thrown in the air! Then there is a terrific fight for the bit of food!
Mr. G took our dog Max for a walk, I went part of the way but although I got over the first style, the second one defeated me, so I stayed there and did a bit of nature photography, as I was sitting almost underneath a Sweet Chestnut tree!
