Birds appeared out of nowhere, when my sister and I walked round Newmillerdam in Yorkshire, on my recent visit to the UK.
They were so keen to reach us they each left a wake.
The duck in the foreground here is not actually walking on water! There is a weir, as you will see in the next photo.
We didn’t have any bread, which is perhaps just as well, as it is bad for them.
But I used to come here often and feed all the water birds, when I was a kid, and beyond.
If possible, I always like to make this nostalgic trip, when I visit my home town.
