Today's advent post is more of a walk post...but it does contain some festive things too.
Every month or so I meet up with a friend for a Sunday morning walk. Today the weather was perfect and we went to Attenborough Nature Reserve.
There's a rather nice visitor centre which has a cafe, but we were not going there.
The light was beautiful and I was thrilled to get a pretty good photo of this Robin.
These lakes are flooded quarry sites and a haven for wildlife.
The reserve borders the river Trent and it's easy walking with lots to see.
The path also leads to a great "no frills" cafe. Where the staff are super friendly, the mugs of tea are huge and the mince pies are homemade :0)
Sitting outdoors in the December Sunshine...what a treat.
Too soon it was time to leave. Can you spot the Heron?
Here he is.
I love this white cottage next to the church.
Yay another Robin shot...very festive :0)
It was a very pleasant, flat three mile walk that we hardly noticed as we were so busy chatting.
