|Lake at Fish Farm|
We were greeted warmly by Viv who gave us coffee and goodies and from the comfort of her conservatory we were able to see all the Tits, Chaffinch and Tree Sparrows coming down to numerous feeders she had hanging from a tree.
Viv and Michael run Barnwell Cottages not far
away where you can hire a number of cottages in wonderful surrounding
countryside with bird hide, lovely walks and a badger set. She explained that their home farm had 96
acres. Well I did not think we would be
walking over all that today!
Firstly we went over some rough ground and it was lovely to at last see the Gorse in full bloom before arriving at the Fish Farm.
We saw Willow Warblers and heard a Chiffchaff, along with Goldfinch, Robin as well as all the Tits again. There were no birds on the 2 lakes today, only a young man fly fishing and this is a photo of Ronnie and Jimmy watching him.

We walked up a muddy land and saw a Buzzard, Blackbird, Rook and Wood Pigeon before we arrived back at the car just in time to miss a very heavy shower. These 2 photos below were taken from a great distance and so are not great quality.
