The other day we took a walk along our canal to Bumble Hole (Warrens Hall NR). It was a nice sunny day, but cold again, but that's the way we like it! Having seen Winterwatch this week we just wish that we were up in the Cairngorms too. But we are off to the Orkneys soon so we will end up driving through some fantastic views and snow. Anyway I digress, back to our walk out.
The Canal was frozen and quiet, just a few Mallard, Coot and Moorhen about foraging as best as possible in the few bits of open water.
A bit further on a Heron gave us a fly by:
We carried on to Bumble Hole itself and walked down to the viewing platform where we saw 8 Little Grebe keeping very much together, here are seven of them!
