Friday 14th December

Just made it back this morning before the rain started, the ground was starting to dry out, wellies are still the required footwear if wandering off the main paths.
Yesterday there were forty to fifty Teal in the south east corner of the long pond, it was the only unfrozen patch of water. There were sixty on the pond this morning, probably keeping out the way of the wildfowlers. Couple of photos attached.
We are having to book our place at the seat, it’s being taken over by a robin, see photo.
Still going through last years photos and came across one of Beau the border collie in the snow, he seems to have developed a nasty cough.
