Dunorlan Park Part 2

Hi again folks,
continuing on our visit to the park.

The weather started to improve and we continued around the lake as this bright Mallard was having a good scratch.

This posy was left tied to a seat in remenberance of someone dear who had passed away.

On our way around Sue noticed a Robin diving in and out of the bushes onto the path to get food left for the ducks. so I thought I would rattle off a few shots as he was eating and I caught this one with him looking directly at the camera.

Further on was a bush of Rhododendrons in bloom and this amazed us in mid January but in the secluded part of the grounds this is an annual occurrence according to a local walker.

I re-positioned myself and got this, amazing tor mid January I thought.

Off we went for a well earned cup of tea, happy with what we had captured today. As we left the sun came out giving a completely different look to the park.

A tree on the way in that we didn't even look at came to life.

At the top of the park is a Terrace overlooking the lake which gave a striking view.

Well that's it from the park. I hope you enjoyed the visit.

nite nite Luv Mike XX
