|Yesterday you couldn't see the hedge for manure.|
On the way back to the Keepers lock a volunteer lockie was busy clearing the area of tin cans and other rubbish. He was annoyed at the amount of rubbish that accumulated on a daily basis and this only the start of Easter. Wait until the weekend when I expect he will be collecting a lot more.
I had a walk around the Nature reserve in the drizzle and saw the first blue bells in bloom. A Blue Tit was checking out a hole in a tree and a Tree Creeper was busy looking for something tasty. If only the rain had stayed away I could have stayed longer but shades of a defunct camera came to mind due to the rain when I was at Beale Park on the Thames and no way did I want that to happen to this camera.
It must have been mid afternoon, Ian was checking our expenditure on the shopping for the month and I was sorting photos when suddenly, a knock on the side and standing there Pip and Mick Nb Lillyanne. So at last we get to meet each other. Greetings and introductions over we spent the next couple of hours chatting away like long lost friends. Thanks to you both for a very entertaining afternoon. Look forward to resuming where we left off.
