Phil - Stranger 2 of 100
So it's time for Stranger #2 and this is Phil.

I met Phil on a recent walk around the nearby fishing lakes. He was pushing his baby around the perimeter (the interior paths aren't suitable for prams) and had spotted a pair of geese with 7 goslings - not bad, as I'd just spent half an hour photographing a pair with only one!

As he pointed out, there were a few foxes about and the large lake was also known to have some pike that are quite capable of taking a small bird off the water.

Like me, Phil lives near to the lakes and suffers the annoyance of the local fishermen parking their cars and vans along our streets while they enjoy a day (or more) of angling.

The lakes have recently changed hands and the new owners have already made some improvements including some serious fencing (which you can see in the background) and new rules to outlaw dogs from three of the four lakes - which suits me as I'm always a a bit wary when I come across a dog that I don't know.
