A Day in the Dukeries

Friday wasn't too bad a day as we moved into the cooler spell of weather as forecast. There were some sunny spells but it felt cold out of the sun and in the north easterly breeze that was blowing.

On Friday we visited Clumber Park, in the Dukeries, a part of Nottinghamshire. Clumber Park was once the home of the Dukes of Newcastle but is now owned by the National Trust.
We had a walk by the lake taking some photos and video of the geese, swans and ducks. 
Walking through the woodland area we were met by the grey squirrels. They're used to being fed and approach you to see if you've any treats for them. It can make getting a decent photo surprisingly tricky.
We also had a look around the walled kitchen garden. It was confirmation that we're not really that far behind on the plot. Most of the display in the kitchen garden was from flowers rather than vegetables.
We're now about to find out just how cold this forecast Arctic blast of cold weather is going to be.
