Our first stop was Stafford, an overnight stop to break up the long journey.
An early start the next day, skirted around Birmingham and then through some of our old haunts in the Cotswolds, stopping at Broadway Hill for a break.
Managed to arrive at my sister Gill's new house in Wilcot, Wiltshire by coffee time. No this isnt it but they look out on these lovely cottages!
Wait for me!!
A look around and a bite of lunch, then a lovely walk along the adjoining Kennet and Avon Canal.
We also watched Canada Geese and...
... a Little Egret nesting in a heronry.
Unfortunately I was the only one that managed to spot a Grass Snake, but too quick for a photo!
Back in Scotland and stopped for a break at Knowetop Lochs. Willow and Sedge Warblers about and Willow and Long Tailed Tits.
