Easter Ducklings at Dunham Massey................


My day off work on Good Friday was blessed with beautiful sunshine and I had a lovely day visiting the National Trust property at Dunham Massey which is only 10 miles from my house.
( more about Dunham Massey can be seen on my last two posts )

A proud mum
Spring has really arrived with a gusto this year after one of our coldest winters in living memory and it was lovely to see the Mallards with ducklings and Rabbits with young all getting about their business whilst all around them an estimated 2000 people were visiting the lovely parkland.

Easter Bunnies.
I am holiday this week and will be attempting to post this to World Bird Wednesday from an Internet Cafe in the English Lake District....wish me luck

A link to see some lovely birds from all around the world here:

Thanks for stopping by to visit my Song Sparrow from WBW. Your duckling and rabbit images are perfect for this season. Isn't it wonderful to be able to post while on travel! Hope you are enjoying yourself... I'm late returning visits from WBW due to computer problems.
