Woburn Abbey Gardens

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

Through the Window

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…..



A Sunday Walk on the Wild Side

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 along the Riverbank

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

The new…….

And the old.

A Summers Day Trip

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
