The cafe at the Attenborough Nature Reserve is a great place to sit and watch, and especially so in the spring with so many baby waterbirds - coots hiding in the reed-beds, herons squawking in their tree-top nests, goslings and ducklings trailing along behind their parents...
Recently we've been down there in the rain - a flotilla of swans moving out onto the water in formation, necks hunched down into their bodies (I suppose if your bottom-half is wet already, a wet top-half makes little difference) - and in the sun, walking along the River Trent.
It is certainly one of the places I shall miss when we move.
