    Here are some of the better shots I got on what I hoped would be a lovely sunny day - but turned out to be overcast, yet again.

    On the way into the gardens...

    Some of the ruins of the abbey (circa 1050) and the 'modern' cathedral in the background (circa 1500) I used to eat lunch under that tree!

    I spied this chappie as I was walking towards the actual gardens

    VERY engrossed. He let me get quite close.

    He scampered off when he was finished, either to find more food - or possibly a lady squirrel.

    Nope - More food. A squirrel after my own heart (and belly)

    This one was mainly to see what my Canon 50mm f1.8 was capable of

    I also spotted someone familiar...

    ...who then came over to say hello again! I'm annoyed that I missed the focus on this one though.

    Apparently the birds like to pose, too.
