Today then, we stayed. On the agenda was for both of us to walk round the Flash before lunch and then for Ian to touch up the paintwork on the cabin sides.
A wonderful start to our walk, warm, no wind and hardly anyone about. Plenty of bird Hides around the place and we must have visited every one.
3 hours later we arrived back at FS having walked around the 170 acre lake and various paths to the hides. Total mileage around the park is 4 miles. We must have walked nearly all of that especially as Ian had his exploring head on (thinks he's back in the Scouts) and kept saying "wonder where this path leads?"
After lunch and to make myself scarce whilst he was painting I took myself off looking for bugs again. In this I failed miserably and probably shouldn't have bothered because the wind picked up and trying to focus on the tiniest of insects was almost impossible. Anyway I did manage a few and also quite a few birds from the hides. As usual I took loads but getting a bit low on our data dongle 3 allowance and we still have 4 more days before the new 15G starts, most will be posted at a later date on my wildlife blog.
