Just some photos from the pond

Another quick post, but with some sun to brighten things up. This was the scene early morning.

In the shade, a heron flies across the pond.

By lunchtime the sun was reaching across the water, and the gulls were enjoying a feeding frenzy.

At the edge of the pond, on a stone wall, a robin sits among the lichen and watches.

    dW, I love the early morning light. I had to leave for work before it cam properly above the horizon but the next few weeks should be perfect (if we get decent weather).
