Just a few photos from last years day trip to Woburn Abbey and Gardens
As you can see this little chap was more than happy to pose for his photo
His friends were a little shy, though they are very vocal birds
These next shots remind me of all the secret passages from all the Enid Blyton books I read as a child
It was a great day out, one I hope to repeat as there is always something interesting to see.

Mondays, Tuesdays ………. it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is. I just love to photograph birds.
Sometimes it’s easier to count the family members than others.
Or seeing where they have decided to build a nest this year

I work in a building on the riverbank, and if I glance through one window I get to see……
Waiting to Strike…..
Unfortunately I only had a camera phone to take the pictures. Usually I would only see one or two (not six) by the boathouse on pontoons the other side of the river.
I often get to see a heron waiting patiently ready to pounce for its lunch, when I go for mine.
As well as Swans and the Canada geese…..
Others too……. like to frequent the river
And then Homeward Bound…..

Just a few flowers from ‘A Secret Garden’
And a few from the roadside
Even though the day was overcast and subject to a few spots of rain, people still were able to enjoy the gardens, have a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
Summer has arrived, well a few hot days all in a row. Time I thought for a quick walk along the river.
Cross a bridge or two
Views from the new bridge
And the old.

A week ago I went on a day trip to Woburn Abbey. I have been there many times. The first time was on a School Trip the year it opened – yikes -1970 !
I enjoyed the walk around the gardens, it was a lovely day, not too hot.
I also got to see some birds
