A few more images from Findlays birthday walk..............................................

A few random photos taken during Sundays walk guided by Findlay Wilde to celebrate his 11th Birthday.

 Chris, Gary, Sharon, Trevor and Keith head the group alongside the River Weaver.

  The day was so kind to us... the weather was fantastic.

 Within the first few hunderd yards we had seen Mute Swan, Canada Geese, Buzzards, Cormorants, Mallards and Herons nesting.

 Kane sharing his knowledge with Findlay... and Findlays Dad Nigel keeping his eye on the guests.

The highlight for all of us was this Kingfisher... I am still trying to work out how Nigel and Heather organised it's appearance on the day... wonderful parents.

Only in England will you find two red telephone boxes in the middle of nowhere.
No phones they were just ornaments... some people have too much money.

Trevor, Gary, Heather, Sharon and Keith nearing the end of the walk.
We were fed and watered before sharing Findlays birthday cake after a rousing version of Happy Birthday.
Another big thank you to Heather and Nigel and it was so lovely to meet all the guests.
