Well here we are again, as we joined Leeds Castle for another year we thought we would go back as is is supposed to be the best day of the weekend today. We were not to be proved wrong, after a cloudy start the sun appeared.
We decided to take the scenic route to the castle and looked for the Swans nest that was on the lake just below the waterfall, much to our surprise it had shifted downstream to the lower end near the entrance by the current and was in a corner of the lower lake. This made it very accessible and this is the shot I got.
We carried on up to the Castle and was them greeted with this lovely sight basking in the sun, I thought this is number two shot, bring it on. The place is teeming with birds of all descriptions and Swans everywhere.
All right you lot, what Fungus is this? It was in a shady part under a tree.
We then proceeded to at Avery and I actually joined in the tour of all the exotic birds and I enjoyed it very much. I thought, these ere birds are quite interesting and I was enjoying myself learning about them.
There you go, see I'm still taking pictures of them. This is an Ibis which was roaming free in the grounds, be it the Avery grounds.
Well, cant finish Leeds Castle without a Black swan, so here he is in all his splender with water dripping off her back in the sunshine.
What a great sight, I will never tire of this place and will be back with more tomorrow.
I really enjoyed our relaxing day out, I will have to get into this bird lark it's very interesting.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
