Conningbrook Lakes by Great Stour

Being the meteorological first day of Winter I thought it would be nice to have a walk around Conningbrook Lakes this morning. The Weather forecast was for it to cloud over at 10am and as the last two nights have produced below freezing temperatures, I wrapped up with four layers. Needless to say they got […]

brent-geese

A visit to family in Southampton afforded me a chance to pop along to one of my favourite places for Ducks, Geese and Waders. Warsash being on the River Hamble just as it joins Southampton Water and with protected Marshland is always good for something at any time of the year. Regrettably I couldn’t time […]
