Firstly let us start by saying a very Happy New Year from us all at Lightwater Tarns Country Park - It's currently feeling very wintery here as we have snow on the ground - everywhere is so pretty! But signs of spring are starting to appear. Our lovely lodge owners who are on site currently are enjoying being very cosy in their holiday homes (Modern insulation is a fantastic thing!) - another perk to us having a 12 month season as most Lake District Holiday Parks are currently closed.

A Moorhen splashing in the water

It's not just in Wimbledon where the sun is being enjoyed!

Like the rest of the UK , Lightwater Tarns Country Park is also enjoying the hot weather - with temperatures up into the 30's , Jen took the sunny weather as an opportunity to photograph the Wildlife on the main pond. We had been informed of 10 Turfed Ducklings on the pond but we are still to have any photographic evidence of this! We do however have plenty of Mallards with their young, Moorhens, Oyster Catchers and our well documented Canadian Geese and 3 Goslings (More pictures can be seen in the Gallery)

Summers nearly here

We had some lovely weather a few weeks ago where some much needed painting, spraying and tidying was done around the park. Since then we have desperately been waiting for some sunshine so we could silage. (remember we are also a fully functioning farm!) The mowers started yesterday and we have just got all the grass into the pit ready to get the sheeting on. All ready for the cows winter feed. The forecast is predicting sunshine for the next week so hopefully summer is finally upon us.....
