A fun day had by all and bird watchers out in force.

Good evening all.
I hope you are all well.
We have had a fabulous day at Rudyard Lake today, my mum and stepdad have a static caravan down there so we popped up there too for a bit.
There were men and women standing in large groups on the water banks with binoculars and long lens camera`s and we asked them what all the oooha was about and there is currently a Caspian Tern at the lake so we got our binoculars out and sat on the boat ramp at the caravan site and we saw it.lol
Was quite funny to see me and my mum shouting at my stepdad that we could see it and then about 50 odd people suddenly do a quick about turn with their cameras in our direction.
We walked half way around the lake and called into the Rudyard Hotel for lunch and then we did the other half of the lake, cheating slightly by taking the train for a little bit of it.
So we are really tired now but here are a few pics for anyone who`d like to see them.
 
A zoomed shot of the train over the side of the lake.

Loved this tree so had to get a pic.

Another pic of the lake, stunning scenery everywhere you look.

The boats, you can hire rowing boats here or go on a tour boat.

And finally a pic of the train.
Thanks for looking.
Tomorrow will be a pyjama day before I go back to work on Monday.
Hugs Nic.xx
