As with virtually all waterways around here there were a large contingent of Mallards
As I walked around the other side of the lake I found a small flock of 6 Coot feeding among the weeds;
I moved up the road to the wood at Alkincoats and took a short walk around there. There were a good few Blue and Great Tits at all of the feeders and a couple of Dunnock. However, these had to grab what they could between visits from a couple of these guys;
As I had the chance to get some photos of a couple of butterflies too I thought I would share them;
A very nice couple of hours out and about.
