August in the UK is High Summer and we expect long hot days, not this year it was dull and cool, but this day was an exception, although no sun, dull and overcast was a good day for a stroll..
The lake has a good few examples of wild life, including this beautiful swan protecting his territory.
I think this is a mallard but they look so different when performing and showing off.
The Deer are beautiful there is a large herd of them but they do not roam free they are confined to the paddock, and wait for the visitors to feed them, here is a mother with her calf.
Wild parsley and bull rushes together make a beautiful fringe to the lake
This is South Weald Park in Essex I hope you enjoyed our little trip around
