On my way home from seeing the lovely ladies at my local wool shop / crochet group on my day off I made a little detour to the village pond.
Now, I admit it's been years since I was last down here but apart from being a lot tidier, nothing much has changed ...
Despite the dull weather the ducks were in fine form and making plenty of racket as they swam towards each other and then I spotted a beautiful swan heading towards me
My friend had told me earlier that a swan had nested right alongside the fence so I assumed this speedy bird was the owner of that nest, by the time she reached me she was hissing a bit too much for my liking so I legged it!
I'll come down again soon when the babies have arrived and try to get some pictures of the fluffies!
It's funny, being down there on a dull spring day reminded me of coming down here with the Brownies some 30 odd years ago and looking for frog spawn - blimey I hadn't realised it was that long ago and now I feel old!!
