Scenes from a Parkland Walk

A typical scene of one of the lakes in the Parkland.


Actually the heading is a slight distortion, as the post consists of images from two walks put together for a bumper Christmas edition. {:))

A flight of Greylag Geese returning to one of the lakes after a sortie into the nearby open arable fields where they would have foraged for food. They tend to 'To and fro" from the fields during the day for water, preening and rest on the lakes.



A female Great Spotted Woodpecker which in the main avoided a nice clear shot by moving about high in the trees.  



Above and below, images of a typical walk around the waters edge.


A Robin sitting on an exposed perch.






You can get some different photographic effects facing the low afternoon sun.


 A Great Tit peering out from foliage.




A Grey Heron making its way down stream.



A Blue Tit also peering out from foliage.



Bare Willow Osiers.




One of the resident Mute Swan families.
