I'll have a cream tea please

We're really getting into this "almost retired" lark. This afternoon, we nipped out to pick up a parcel in Hemel, and I suggested a trip to Wilstone afterwards which was quite near. Judith had never been there before.

Not much around apart from 2 common sandpipers, year list tick and probably the latest I've ever got them. Good numbers of little egrets and herons as well as the usual lapwings on the bar. Still a few common terns, including some juveniles and a single ringed plover pottering around.
The fields adjacent to the reservoir looked good and ready to get the harvest in.

On the way back we stopped off at the farm shop next door. Really good stock, lovely looking fresh meat, fruit and veg and a TEA SHOP. Along with the other retired people there we di the "ooh, I'll have a cup of tea please" and even indulged in the cream tea!!!

It's going to be really hard in December when I go back to work!!!
