Sunshine returns

It is amazing what a little bright weather will do for the spirit.  An early walk around Trentham Lake this morning was full of surprises.  Around Christmas, I lost the eyepiece rubber from my Nikon 5000 camera.  As it is a special piece, a replacement had to be shipped from Singapore at no mean cost.  This morning I happened to glance down on the path by the Lake and there was the lost eyepiece rubber, dusty but fit for use again.  How lucky was that!
The Maccac's were out in the monkey forest, climbing trees and getting up to gentle mischief.  They don't seem to have a lot of energy to expend when the sun shines.
As we walked, the air was full of bird song. Robins, Dunnocks, Chaffinches, Geese, Ducks, Coots and  this very chirpy Wren.  Of course, the Jackdaws and Crows are always chattering and as a swan flies by, the wing beat whistle can be heared clearly.
By the waterside, the Giant Mace were shedding seeds in ther breeze.  I tried to capture the event and found that much of the seed was lost and out of focus.  This is my best shot.
It is good to be out in the warm again after the sharp cold spell.
