As I topped up the feeders, the Mallard with the ducklings, and the piebald one, gave me a treat, as they came over for some food. I couldn't resist them, and gave them a couple of handfuls for their bravery.
Walking around just the north lake, and more signs of summer vandalism.
Rubbish, and the remains of five barbecues. These mindless morons shouldn't be allowed matches; or not until they grasp the fact that a hot barbecue on a wooden picnic table, will burn.
Spoils it not only for themselves, but for others too.
The Common Terns have calmed down a bit now, after the loss of their chick.
They were still flying around, but not dive bombing me this morning.
And up by the weir, a Grey Heron stood on the railings.
I think he must have been asleep, because he didn't move as I took his picture, and some video.
Finally, back over the road bridge, and home; in time for my parcel.
