at the weekend that was threatening lots of snow Sue and I went to Royal Tunbridge Wells to explore a park that a friend had told us about on Saturday.
This park is a fantastic place even on a cloudy and wet Sunday afternoon, the wildfowl were in abundance as were the gardens which will appear in part two.
The path winds it's way down to the lake and was frequented by dog walkers and runners even though the sky was grey and a hint of snow was in the air.
The path runs all around the lake and we were greeted by this I think is a young Muscovy Duck but I stand corrected if wrong. Hopefully Steve, Mike of Ken will chime in with it's correct name. I have check through my books to no avail.
and of course a gull looking like he owned the place.
The Mallards seem to be starting to getting there colour back for the spring which I hope is not that far away.
Greylag Goose were also about.
On the bank to the left was a fishing party and they had this gorgeous dog.
A rustic tree stood on the bank waiting to spring and to get it's leaves back again.
An unusual sight the female Mallard showing off her plumage.
Given that we have had so much rain in the UK I have yet to find much Fungi, here is a little on a post.
Lastly on the grey and damp day something magical was about to happen to make the trip even more worthwhile. This last shot was across the lake, still a bit dull.
Come and look tomorrow, I think you will find it worthwhile.
Thanks for dropping by.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
