Stroll around Kingsbury Water Park

Greg and I went for a walk around Kingsbury Water Park, near Tamworth, this morning as part of my #walk1000miles challenge.

We walked around the opposite way to the way we usually go. We only walked a couple of miles in as many hours because we were taking photographs and Greg was giving me some more photography lessons, especially on how to get better photographs out of my phone.

It was windy, although it was not particularly cold and the sky was quite non-descript, so photographs were a bit challenging.

There were sailing boats out on one of the lakes.

I was quite surprised to see Crocuses blooming, although the weather has been so wet and mild, it is hardly surprising that flowers think that Spring has already arrived.

There were also plenty of water fowl to be seen, including large swans and greylag geese.

No visit to Kingsbury Water Park is complete without taking some pictures of the ponies who live near the bridge.

The paths were actually quite dry, so maybe we are finally seeing an end to the mud??

I had not actually realised the full extent of Kingsbury Water Park and just how many pools there are to explore. That will give me plenty of walking opportunities next week, when there are fewer people around.
