Welney visit

Sally has been going on and on about seeing the swan feeding at the Welney Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust 🙂

So today was the chosen, freezing cold,day, we picked up Ellee, in the midst of writing her secret book, and drove out to the hides.

After getting over the shock of paying over £11 for the two of us (Ellee is a member so gets in free) we settled into the freezing cold hide to wait for the midday feed. The moment arrived and er well that was it – a few swans and ducks sailed over as they do when you get the bread out at Newnham playground. But the hordes of migratory swans on the horizon couldn’t have cared less, obviously if you have flown a few hundred miles from the arctic you aren’t going to mingle with the local Hoi polloi.

All a tad disappointing. However, Ellee gave us some delicious home made soup on our return and we had a lovely hot bath at home 🙂 🙂
