Exploring Somerford Lagoon on the Lower Mill Estate in the Cotswold Water Park by canoe is a great way to get up close to the wildlife. As we canoed around the lake on Sunday there were lots of egrets enjoying fishing in the shallows. These 3 took to the air to show off their yellow wellies beautifully.
I'd never really considered how well camouflaged chaffinches were until I was trying to take this photo and kept losing the chaffinch! There are certainly lots of leaves around for them to hide in at the moment!
