Today it is beautiful and a real glimpse of the lovely weather to come (hopefully). I had a day off work, the sun was shining and J was ready for a walk. Accompanied by Nanny we headed off for Dunton Nature Reserve and bought duck food for the lake birds and an ice lolly for J.
The ground was muddy in places and J found plenty of opportunities to sink his feet into soft mud - opportunities which were not wasted!The blossom was in full bloom and everything was bursting with life and promise of riches to come. The birds were in fine form and the air was filled with melody while the rabbits scuttled around half hidden in the densely wooded areas.
J looked and listened and noticed different things - the stony remains of a house post and trees which had been felled and which provided a home for all manner of creatures.
J was keen to get to the lake most of all though.
He found some very hungry birds at the lake and they were pleased to see us. There were one or two punch ups between geese and ducks and a few between warring males and females. In the end though I think all were fed happily and the bags were packed safely away to be swapped for a lolly on their return to the visitors centre.
