Cold and frosty, with some brief sunshine.
After topping up the feeders, I set off round the north lake.
The Mallards caught up with me as arrived at the road bridge, so a quick feed, and I made my getaway.
By now a few boats were out on the lake, so I wasn't expecting to see very much.
Certainly not a Goldeneye.
A lovely female, swimming with a few Tufted Ducks.
And just the other side of the footpath, a female Goosander.
Very little else, until I reached the top end. A Kingfisher flew out from his usual perch in the bushes, across the water, and settled in the distance.
Back under the road bridge, the Mallards caught up with me again, and as I made my way down the path to the south lake, the Crows turned up.
By now, the sun was trying to shine through, but some distant cloud soon rolled in and put an end to that.
Onto the bird hide, and the Robin was waiting. He'd flown down the path to meet me.
I tried to get him to take it from my hand, but he's just a little wary still.
Walking past the rowing club, a lone Pochard and very little else; but at least the sun had decided to shine again.
A sunny Mallard.
Past the houses, and soon back to the car park.
By now the sun had gone behind some dark cloud. Snow maybe?
This Blue Tit didn't seem too bothered.
