Holywell Dene & Pond

I parked up at Holywell village and headed east towards the Dene and then took a turn northwards towards the Obelisk eventually heading back to Holywell going along the south of Holywell Pond. A mild and sunny day meant a chance of taking some photos with some light to work with and without getting hypothermia, again!

On reaching the Dene a flock of Blue, Great and Coal Tits were feeding when a single male Bullfinch flew in to view.

Then a heron flew up from the Dene into the field above.

Heading north a flock of 8 Linnet and 15 Yellowhammer were feeding in the stubble field.

Along the south of Holywell Pond a new path is under construction

And on the pond ..... a few Tufties, couple of Gadwall, a Mallard and a pair of Mute Swan.
