Thames Valley flying visit!

Linda and I popped down to Maidenhead for a flying visit with Mum-in-Law: she fancied a day out, so we drove to Wraysbury and enjoyed a walk in the meadows. Our target was the Ankerwyke Yew, reputedly one of the oldest in England: very impressive!

Lots of wildlife: Kites, Buzzards, Green Woodies and most of the expected Odonata. After lunch at the Royal Farm Shop near Windsor, we carried on through Maidenhead to Boulter's Lock for a stroll by the River Thames. All the expected birds were on show: Ring-necked Parakeet, Mandarin and Grey Wagtail. Tea at the Lock Inn and then home!
