A couple of days sunshine, and this is what greeted me this morning, at the car park.
The mindless scum that think it's acceptable to leave their litter, for others to clean up.
Well, when I get pictures of the morons that leave this sort of rubbish, I'll be posting them.
Over on Cormorant island this morning, there was a single Little Egret, preparing to leave his roosting spot.
On the footbridge, by the car park, a Wren was searching for insects, and in the bushes, a juvenile Goldcrest was doing the same.
Quite a thick mist hung over the lake this morning, and hadn't cleared by the time I left.
Venturing up to the north lake, were the Mute Swans and cygnets from Cormorant island.
At the top end, the swans were still gathered. Their numbers, however, have gone down. The reason; we now have thirteen silly swans trapped in the gully.
Perhaps a rescue operation should be put in place.
On the south lake, the Pochard is still in the same place.
I don't think he moves much.
At the rowing club, the pair of Mute Swans were with their single cygnet.
The little one is getting much bigger now.
A couple of Grey Herons fishing from the boat jetties, and round by the houses, and then it was back to the car park; and the rubbish.
