Haysden Country Park and the Fly Past.

Hi folks,

This will be the last of our visit to the park this week but rest assured we will return. We had a lovely few hours in the sunshine.

Canada Goose, which should have orange legs. "When are we off then?"

Mallard in the sunshine, my they really have nice colours

 These two getting excited about the fly past.

 Wot you looking at? "I'm not joining in".

Young Coot, must be, no white feathers, "neither am I."

 Another Mallard, showing off his rear end for the camera. "Wots all the fuss about."

 Grey Lag, I hope, waiting for the action.

This was 1130am, still cold.

Show off getting ready for action.

Me a Swan? I'll just stay here and preen myself.

Ending with a flypast...


The inevitable splash down!

Thanks for looking.
