Ratty, goslings, chicks & feeding time at Arundel

Off to Arundel to explore the Antique shops. Kim’s Bookshop produced some holiday reads for Sue and Bea and a Collins Caterpillar guide for me. Great lunch in Butlers, as usual great food and service. Walked by the castle, passing three moorhen chicks, four goslings then loads of wildfowl at Swanbourne Lake. 50p bags of wildfowl food from the café provided entertainment. The prize was waiting for the walk back – a Water Vole, the first I’ve seen in perhaps forty years. It sat on the bank eating its veggies quite unfazed by our presence then clambered down the bank and swam over the stream.
