Whitewebbs is a lovely place to walk and we were there with our daughter and three of the eight grandchildren today and discovered something new! This prompted me to post a short piece and I hope it encourages you to visit yourselves.
This photo and that in the heading were taken on the walk uphill to the lake near Whitewebbs House now a restaurant. It is tranquil and magical. Even passing dogs have a reverent air.
At the lake we fed the ducks – two or three species , coots, moorhens, with food pellets brought by Megan and Jake.
Megan spotted a heron and turtles the other side of the lake and we went to take a closer look.
There were several turtles including a baby one –
which you can see on the back of the large one on the right.
I have never seen turtles in the lake before and I was excited to discover them.
