What a lovely hot and sunny day for the festival ! It was packed. There was even a party of Spanish cruise ship passengers whom we saw being ushered through Central Station in the morning, all clutching Port Sunlight leaflets.
Apart from a Sparrowhawk we saw while we were eating our lunches by the bowling greens, we didn’t do much wildlife spotting. Instead we watched the Mersey Morris Men, admired the donkeys, the brass band and the vintage cars, and came away with many goodies from the food stalls fidget pie, pheasant pie, black puddings, locally-brewed beer, chutneys and sweet puddings!
