Things were looking a lot more Wintery this morning. We walked around Shipley Lake in the misty gloom taking heart that the sun was up there somewhere, trying to poke through the cloud. The lake was filled with wildfowl. We spotted Mute Swans, Coots, Moorhens, Mallards, Canada Geese, Wigeon, Gadwall, Black-headed Gulls and Cormorants. Quite a collection! Returning via the old overflow car park of the long-gone theme park, the sun was till struggling against the gloom.
