Meeting friends at Upton Country Park

Thursday 18th February 2016

Although I don’t have Pilates this week Max and I still went to Upton Country Park for our walk this morning. We were just a tiny bit later than usual.

First of all we walked through Llewelyn Wood.

Then we went onto the stream as normal, where I threw Max’s cone 2 or 3 times before we moved onto the Woodland Walk. Here we met our friend Brian, with both his dog Barney…

We stayed and chatted for a while and then moved onto the lake, where ,a few sticks were thrown. This was Max on a pile of wood chippings near the lake.

As we walked along the side of the lake I took the opportunity of the sunshine to take a photo of a female mallard.

And much to my delight we came across a Nuthatch a little bit further on.

We continued on roundm with Max playing in the stream, but there are no more photos for today. The tide was out and the view across Upton Lake was pretty dull.

A year ago today

We went for a walk on Canford Heath where there was quite a bit of cutting back going on.
