Saturday evening in the park


We were out all day yesterday, and when we got home I was just wiped out and had a headache. So after dinner it was a choice between bed or a walk in the park. Well, at 11 in the morning it had been raining so heavily that even with the windscreen wipers on full, it was hard to see. At 8 in the evening it was beautifully sunny, so the walk in the park won. We took a different route to our normal one, to keep the sunshine on our shoulders - cue John Denver.
The chestnut trees are just coming towards the end of their prime, but still worth taking a look at...


Then we encountered this pair of mallards:


They were walking along dipping their necks up and down, and looking to the left and right. I am not sure what they were looking at. My guess is that there were probably some little mallard chicks in the long grass there too, but I didn't want to get too close and alarm them. And as this was one stretch where we were in the shade, C was starting to feel cold and wanted to move on...

So like the ducks, we did.
