I took a walk around the lake towards the end of this afternoon when the sun came out, on cue, as forecast. It was beautifully peaceful with hardly a soul about - just lots of happy bird families. There were swans, Canada & greylag geese, ducks and their young aplenty! I thought these young cygnets with the adult swans looked particularly lovely against the silky blue water.
I've included a couple of extras - a fun one of a cygnet being rather demanding, and a shot of a grebe that I was rather pleased with as they usually stick to the centre of the lake and spend much of their time submerged under the surface of the water!
Very many thanks for the wonderful response to yesterday's Kestrel blip - all those lovely comments, stars and hearts are very gratefully received! :))
Day 53 of Blipout2015, suggested by PaulFS, making the most of the daylight by only blipping outdoor photos until the clocks change in October.
