My Advent Calendar ♥ 4th December

Hello lovelies,
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.


I hope your second Sunday in Advent has been a good one lovelies.

  5. That is a wonderful robin shot. Your robins are so dainty-looking compared with ours. (We won't see them again for another four months - they fly away south for the winter.)

    I must say your walk looked much warmer than mine! Beautiful photos. :)
