First stop is the Bird Hide set in the middle of pine woods and as we walked in there was a ripple of excitement because this little chap was on the ground feeding!! The first time that I have seen one and it was much smaller than its grey squirrel cousin. They are an endangered species so it was exciting to see it.

After a walk round Nellie's Moss (the name of the lake) we went for a cup of tea and home via Alnwick Castle which stood as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films.
