Beatrix Potter's Hill Top, Near Sawry - Wed 6th Oct 2010

The weather was bad in the first hour or two so had a day off birding, and we went on 555 to Windermere, then a open top bus down to Bowness and then the ferry across to Ash Landing, and then walk to Far Sawry and to Beatrice Potter's House at Near Sawry.

Photos are: top: Beatrice Potter's Hill Top House, middle photo: her house and garden and bottom photo: On left is Buckle Yeat featured in "The Tale of Tom Kitten" and "The Pie and Patty Pan" and further on is the famous Anvil Cottage.

A party of 9 female Red Breasted Mergansers were on Windermere close to Ash Landing.
