5th October 2021 – Stoke Park Estate, Bristol

After a cold and blustery morning I had decent light on my walk around Duchess Pond in Stoke Park Estate this afternoon. As well as the grey heron and the stonechats in my photos I saw six swallows lingering before their flights back to Africa. Even the castle (the Dower House) looked good in the sunshine.
