I had a short walk around Duchess Pond in Stoke Park Estate dodging the rain showers.
The sun shone briefly and a few butterflies appeared. I was particularly pleased to see a Red Admiral and that I was able to get close to a Green-veined White.
Other than mallards, coots and Canada geese on the lake there wasn’t much bird life. The most interesting was a grey heron and a glimpse of a small bird in the reeds (no idea what it was).
