A Visit To Baffins Pond

Last week Dean took Hannah back to Baffins, where we used to live, to visit the wildlife pond there. The pond covers 2 1/2 acres, with a small island in the middle and is surrounded by willow trees, woodland and open grass. It is an absolute haven for wildlife and in the late spring is full of baby water birds. On this visit they were able to find snowdrops and the first spring crocuses.

The first spring crocus.

The pond has designated feeding stations and viewing areas, in the background you can see the enclosed wetlands where the birds nest.
It's a big throw for a small arm!!
