We finally got some summer - a hot couple of days.
We ended up spending an hour or so at Burnham beeches, sitting by one of the ponds as the sun dappled.
We had lots of company - a Muntjac deer delicately nibbling water lillies;
But just a bit too timid to go into the water, even though it's not very deep.
The lilies were very thick and all around dragonflies scooted around;
This duck brought her six ducklings along and had to stand on a log to call them after they had disappeared among the plants;
And this one came over to have a look at us;
