The first of a belated two part post about my observations on a recent Parkland walk.
The weather varied throughout the morning. Water was still very much in attendance with some of the meadows partially covered in standing water.
The underside of a Black-headed Gull.
This one has not developed its spring time dark brown head yet.
One of the flooded meadows.
A classic Blue Tit pose.

Hearing the tell-tell twittering of Goldfinch I found these two at the top of a tree in the sunlight.
Dried Teasel heads are good for testing the clarity of new lens.
This below is normally a narrow little stream leading from a river into one of the lakes in the Parkland. A quick study normally reveals perhaps the odd Moorhen at the edge of the stream, occasionally a pair of Mallard will venture along feeding. The water level was slightly higher the other day, but this is quite bad enough and reveals the murky looking water that is typical of all the rivers around here at the moment.
More Black-headed Gulls and in unison as well.
