It was a gloomy evening but I needed to tear myself away from watching the Cricket World Cup on the television and so I strolled across the road to Stoke Park Estate for an hour of nature watching. There was lots to see and enjoy as I hope you can see from my photos.
Duchess Pond in Stoke Park Estate – only a couple of miles from Bristol city centre and less than 5 minutes on foot from home
The grey heron flew in as I arrived
A whitethroat made a lot of noise above the pond
Flowers of so many colours
Moorhens young and old
And the grey heron kept moving around the pond in search of his supper
I even got back in time to see the end of the cricket match.
