Back on the mainland... Petworth House and Park

Once again ventured onto the mainland, this time to West Sussex. We decided to walk to Petworth park, which was only a short walk away from where we were staying.
As we entered the park the deer were a lovely sight.
After a few minutes walking we reached the lake, where we spotted two egyptian geese, a first for us...
The canada geese were aplenty, with their juveniles, as were Greylags.

Wanted to take this one home!!
More pics of the beautiful canada geese ...

A wonderful day out :)
The following day we visited Pulborough brooks, West Sussex.
The day was overcast and drizzly, all the birds seemed to disappear to shelter. We decided to call it a day, and went to the cafe onsite for a cuppa.
Imagine our surprise when we caught sight of the feeders outside the cafe. They were a hive of activity, with several grey squirrels, and many other birds visiting. We had many more sightings here than on the reserve!
Everything scattered when this jay visited the table ...
Another pleasant day ....
