We'd booked tickets to visit the Peak Wildlife Park on Wednesday. It was warm, very warm, possibly too warm but we ventured out, takng a small picnic with us. The ducks around the picnic tables were ever hopeful of treats, nibbling at our feet and gently tapping our legs with their beaks. Butterflies and dragonflies flittered over the nearby ponds and thankfully there were no wasps to worry about whilst we ate our food.
Of course, the birds and animals were either sheltering or making the most of the sunshine. Below are photos of some of those we saw.
