Saturday morning and the Sun is shining. I decided to pay Bosherston Lily Ponds another visit, to get some exercise and do some birdwatching.
Bosherston Lily Ponds are close to Pembroke. The ponds are managed by the National Trust. In the Summer there is a parking charge - last year the charge was £4 per car.
I am an early riser. I arrived at the lily ponds before this Mallard got up!
Last time I was here the water level was low. The ponds are full now following the winter rains.
It was very sunny but windy and cold in exposed areas. Mute Swans are difficult to photograph in bright sunshine.
This Great tit was foraging in some trees and bushes.
I could hear this Robin singing long before I saw it.
In the summer the ponds are covered in Lilies, the ponds look a bit sparse this time of year.
This Dunnock was looking for food on a bridge.
I think someone had left breadcrumbs on the bridge to attract birds. This female Chaffinch was taking full advantage.
This male Chaffinch was also helping himself to a free breakfast.
I have no idea what this Great Tit was looking at from the bridge.
This Chaffinch had a look too.
The reeds have died back, in a few weeks they will be full of Warblers.
Two Goosander in the middle of the lake.
I think this is a Goldeneye - please correct me if I'm wrong.
There were a few Cormorants looking for fish in the water.
Chest out , shoulders back!
The Robins are very tame here, I managed to get very close to them.
This one was happy to pose on a tree stump.
A Moorhen on the crystal clear water.
Two for the price of one, a Mallard and a Moorhen.
A Mallard duck and Drake to finish my walk.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my latest blog.
