Taken from my patio doorway.  No time to find a better location as it was all over within a few minutes.

Ferriby Sluice & the Humber Estuary.

Ferriby Sluice is situated at the point where the River Ancholme runs out into the Humber Estuary.  It's permanently manned by lock keepers as it's a busy lock for Keelboats and pleasure craft. 

My recent blog posts were all of images photographed during December 2018.  I don't know when I'll be able to get out to take new Pics so my next post may not be for some time. 

Low tide and the River Anchome is in flood as it runs out into the Humber Estuary
at Ferriby Sluice Lock pits.

On the bank of the Ancholme is the Ceemex Cement Plant.

Here, the River Ancholme runs into the Humber Estuary.  
The far bank is East Yorkshire

The Humber Estuary is an Internationally important site for migratory sea birds and at low tide
they can be seen in great numbers feeding on the mudflats on thousands of crustaceans. 

"The Hope & Anchor" is popular for the pleasure boats and visitors.

Tucked away in the reeds is this small cabin boat.  It's berthed in "South Drain".

Seen here from Ferriby, only a few miles east, is the Humber Bridge.

Normanby Park & Gardens.

On our recent visit to Normanby Park to see the Deer being fed we had a walk around the gardens.
These images are in no particular order but just as I took them.

Rear view of the Hall (the front was in deep shadow).

The park has some good walks.

In the walled garden was a wickerwork character reading his book. 

There were several of these wickerwork art pieces in the walled garden.

Most of the greenhouses were empty, just this leftover from Halloween.

The one greenhouse that was still heated was crammed with all the tropical plants.

Rabbit caught red handed in the veg garden.

The front of the Hall, almost in sunlight.

In the old stables was this life sized sculpture.

Also in the stables, this stuffed deer has been preserved for visitors to see.
It was once the dominant male in the herd but died following a fight with another male deer,
