I had a lovely walk around Worthington Lakes this morning. Despite the cold there were lots of people about.


This little robin is really tame. It was hopping around on the path around my feet.


When it realised I'd nothing for it it went to this lady on the bench.


The gorse looked really nice with the frost and dew on it.


These two young moorhens were fighting with each other for ages. I think they were play fighting.


Dam wall.


Outlet.

Birkacre is the best for tame birds, the Kingfisher will sit there all day while people take it photo, and some of the Robins are very tame when thay are hungry.

Ive had one of the Robins eating out the palm of my hand a couple of years ago.

Nice shots. Moorhens and Coots will be scrapping over territory like this for the next few months.

Is that the outflow that goes into the Dougie?

That photo of the robin is a cracker. The robins over here are massive. More like the size of a thrush and don't seem to have the bright red on their breasts. The colour is a lot duller.
