just to tie up the two blogs after our trip out yesterday to the Castle.
Trev a friend, Sue the wife and I decided to have a look around after taking Daisy our granddaughter back to Ashford. As we arrived the weather looked a bit grey but we pressed on regardless.
This Coot looked a bit grey as well as it swam across the lake. It seemed to be collecting food so we investigated and found a nest under the board walk and you could just see the chicks with their flame coloured heads through the slats. The most strange creatures you ever did see, not sure Trev got a picture.
A White Peacock appeared further up the slope attracting the attention of a female.
We noticed that the foliage was a bit lifeless with not a lot of colour about for this time of year. This Rodedendron was a splash of colour in the landscape which cheered us up.
Across the lake where loads of Graylags, this one thought we had some food.
Then we spotted these little critters scampering about all over the place. We joked that on another blog we look at there were two dogs that like to chase Squirrels. These dogs, Daisy and Holly have adventures that we follow daily, here is the link.... daisyg.blogspot.co.uk
There, I finished off with almost the same picture that Trevor took. What a nice fellow he was,take a close look Daisy and Holly, this is about as close as you are ever likely to get.
Thanks for dropping by.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
