Lake and Pond on the outskirts of Winkleigh

This gorgeous pond is more of a lake - with Canada geese and fish.

There were lots of lovely marginal plants, and we probably didn't find all the pond life it harbours, as we only sampled at 2 points around the pond.

Time and weather 10-11am sunny

The owner also let us look at her much smaller garden pond (no fish here - so better for some wildlife).
