This photo is just looking back towards Top wood. Time to get back to birds and surveying! This small waterfall was at the north end of the Iron Bridge Lake (where the fishing sign is on the map). There were several fisherman out on this lovely Saturday morning. Not many waterfowl on this lake though, possibly because of the fishermen. Just a few Mallard and a Moorhen. This old redundant waterwheel was in the same area. I am now at the south end of the Garden Lake and walk under this dodgy looking bridge to get a good view of the lake. Here there is much more water bird activity. You'll see that my tetrad cuts this lake in half, so I have to estimate where the line is and count all the birds I see up to that line. Tricky! I was able to count Tufted Duck, Pochard, Coot, Black-headed Gulls, Mute Swans and Canada Geese from my viewpoint (which is shown below)
It was then a case of turning around and walking south down the lane towards New Lake. The sun flickering through the trees along here was lovely.
