Fair-weather photos.

I spotted the Cotton-wool Tufted Duck when loitering about in one of the rare sunny intervals that we are encountering in July!

Another attraction for visitors seems to be the menagerie of feathered creatures that occupy the back garden of Saul Junction House. Each Cockerel has several ‘wives’ and there are also Ducks, Guinea Fowl and Geese wandering around.
