Trittiford Mill Pool at dusk

We were not (officially) allowed to go to Trittiford Mil on our own, and certainly not at this time of night.  However, it was the very best local place to see birds... coots, moorhens, ducks, geese, herons... And there were islands we couldn't reach which were therefore magickal...   I suspect my mother turned a blind eye when I ventured that far. Not that I told her, of course.

Swans at Trittiford Mill

We were always told to avoid the swans as they could break our arms, but they are magnificent animals.

Trittiford Mill in the morning

I was never allowed here at this time of day... but isn't it utterly gorgeous? If I still lived around there, my morning rambles would head reliably in this direction.
