No not Cumbria but Suffolk lakes.
All the usual suspects on the scrape form the first hide (Pauls Hide) so no change there,
Went on into the LBJ woodland area, this Blue Tit was sheltering from the sun under some bramble leaves.
Robin was giving a nice pose before going for the food others had put down.
Then a Marsh Tit came to share in the spoils. In the next pic you can see its been ringed.
Next onward through the woods to the sound of Great Spotted Woodies to the next lakes and a reasonably close Goldeneye.
Oh what's down there.......
A female was further away.
The usual Tufties with one trying to walk on water.
Back to the Kingfisher hide to see who was about.....
To the left in the bushes was perched the blue streak
Just sat there without changing position. The noise of the cameras was almost deafening clicking away in the hide, do wonder why more people don't set camera to silent.
The Little Egret continued to wiggle its feet looking for food.
Two pair of Teal looking good in the sunlight
And the kingie still just sat in the same place.
Out of another hide some Herons were trying not to move and be seen..
Mr & Mrs Pochard
On the path back to the car there are some feeders placed in the reed bed with a limited view but could see Reed Buntings.

That what I see Tony instead of pics, I dont have a clue about these thing but I do know it doesnt work if I try to post things from my phone so I just use my tablet. Or other reason is your pics are just too good to share and dont want us all getting jealous lol
Tony T said:logo at the top left corner disappears sometimes making it impossible to get back to the start of the community pages, its so annoying.
Such an on/off feature Tony & I agree very annoying ... if it's missing I click on 'main website' at top right then 'community' on next page to get back to menu!
Pics still not showing!
I'm the same as the others - the disappearing Goldeneye is the first photo to show, which is a shame.

It may depend on your camera. The 'quiet' mode on mine doesn't offer any benefit at all and is a complete waste of a switch. Unless they have improved the mirrorless ones, this is typical of all Nikon cameras, including professional level.
Thank you for persisting Tony & sharing your great variety of birds with us!
A herculean effort!
