Walk Around Swanpool

10 Oct

It has been another glorious sunny Autumn day today so this afternoon I walked around Swanpool, a peaceful and gentle place to be.

Swanpool Nature Reserve

Roots, Gull, Mallard pair and Coot

What odd ‘webbed’ feet


And, just for interest – this is a photo, not taken by me, of what has happened to Porthminster Beach in St Ives after a recent big storm. There’s another due at the weekend.  The ‘cliff’ is said to be 30ft high!

    I have seen Porthminster with a cliff before, but not like this! That is one big drop!

    It really is amazing what damage the storms can do. I fear it’s only going to get worse.

          Thank you. It has been a wild night with not a lot of sleep. It’s still dark outside so I don’t know how the garden is faring. In hope… 🙂

            Oh that’s the worst, not knowing. Fingers crossed.

            The Dahlias are bent down but everything else seems okay, not half as bad as I had anticipated which is a big relief. 🙂

    Slow ducks and swans?
    I’ve always believed ducks and swans were quite fast?
