Alongside the lake above the walled garden was this Robin
and which seemed to insist on having its photo taken.
Once inside the walled garden we soon saw a Grey Wagtail although difficult to get near which is much easier later in the year
There were at least three GS Woodpecker drumming away in nearby woodland and good numbers of Chaffinch in every area we visited
As you will expect the gardens are looking good with the spring bulb well on
and the woodland carpet is just starting to be formed by flowering Wood Anemone. Another week and they should be in full flood.
On the way out a couple of Buzzard were to be seen close to the road
