Last weekend was the RSPB big garden bird watch, which I do with Rosie in our garden. In the following days I am always keyed up to spotting birds. I spotted these birds on a stroll around the lake at Trentham Gardens.
The most notable birds at Trentham are the Mute Swans. Their numbers have increased over the last few years. They are big birds and they need a good run to take off from the water. Their wings make a whistling sound on the down beat. Today they were flying in groups of 2 to 5 birds and circling the lake.
