Next had a walk around some very nice areas with the pond and the summers house were nice and enchanting. The woodlands seem very healthy and full of life with lots of different Fungis around and quite a lot of bird life with lots of Coal Tit and a Buzzard family of 4 the notable species though no red squirrels around for us though we did come across a lovely Common Toad.

After a late pub lunch headed down to Thirlmere Reservoir to end the day with a short walk even though manmade some lovely scenery.
