Five on Friday

It's Friday so I'm joining in with  Amy at Love Made my Home for this week's Five on Friday.  Click on the link at the bottom of this post to find others who are joining in too.


Spotted this week whilst out and about with my camera

 1.  A lovely row of autumnal trees in the local park last Saturday.

 2.  Swans pulling weed out of the lake at Trentham Gardens, we wondered what they were going to do with it. 

 3.  Kestrel on a post at Consall Nature Reserve, spotted as we were on a walk there on Sunday.

4.  An unusual creation which is part of the 'Home Ground' exhibition at Middleport Pottery, Middleport, Stoke-on-Trent - we called in for a look around and a coffee after our walk along the canal on Monday. 
 

5. A steam train running along the line on the Churnet Valley Railway as we walked in the Consall Country Park on Sunday morning.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

    1. I vaguely remember going to Brighton on a train when I was about four, I expect it was a steam train then - I remember the smell of the smoke:)

    1. Ha, Ha - he was on a tree when I first spotted him but he flew off from there just as I was going to take a photo - but I got him further along on the post:)

  10. Interesting group of five, always like seeing swan, their appearance is so different from their behavior.

    1. Thanks, Janet - I striggled a bit this week - swans can look so beautiful but also can be dangerous too:)
