Bluebell walk at Otterhead Lakes

Today, dodging the showers we went for a walk at Otterhead Lakes, one of my favourite places, to see all the bluebells.


The map shows the path we take, from the car park following the red line down to the first lake and then along the path through the woods to the second lake.  Earlier in the year we came here to see the carpets of snowdrops, now it is the turn of the bluebells.


When we got to the first lake one of swans came up to see if we had brought any bread, (but we had forgotten).


It was closely followed by some ducks, who were equally disappointed by us.


The swan upended itself to search for its own food.


As we walked along the path by the river we could see the carpets of bluebells in between the trees.


Neil posed on the little bridge across the stream.


In an established woodland the bluebells are native English where the bells hang to one side as opposed to Spanish bluebells where the bells are all the way round.


When we got the second lake there was a clump of yellow flowers that looked a bit like buttercups.


The water was calm on the lake.


Walking back we admired the bluebells in the woods along the bank.


We are so lucky to live in this beautiful part of the country.  come and visit us
