Well was it cold or what.
As we walked in Sue said, "were's the Peacocks?" as there were none at the entrance due to the lack of visitors and none as we walked up the path to the Duck pond. I thought that due to the cold weather they had been collected up and bedded down, but at that point I spotted them all together in the sunshine above the Waterfall.
Thank goodness I said they are still here .
At this point we decided to forget about the castle and both headed back along the footpath to the pond, past the Waterfall .
We had to keep walking as it was freezing. The weather looked nice in the pictures but there was ice on the lake.
Back at the pond the birds were all under the bridge in the sunshine. No names that's down to you lot..... well perhaps not, now dont give me any stick, it's a..........Male Tufted Duck.
These two are on thin ice. Male and Female Mallard, tried to get the colours of the rear end of the male but no such luck.
Wahayyy, this ain't much fun.
Moorhen who I think has had enough of the cold water as he has just jumped out..
In the sunshine the Daffs were beginning to shoot up, I hope Jack Frost is kind to them.
Thanks for looking.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
