Up at about eight o’clock. Weather looked OK – overcast but bright.
Fed cats. Had coffee & weetabix: nearly out of sugar!
What, I enquired of myself, to do.
I know, I’ll walk to Retford!
Packed sarnies (M&S ham & egg salad) & OJ.
Loaded wash machine.
Put long lens on camera and set off about half past eight.
Grebes: “bottom” pair still holding to the centre of the pond; “middle” pair encroaching on “bottom”s teritory; “top” pair still sitting(?)
Round pond & down canal to shopping centre. The damson tree’s in fruit.
Caught a bee on a bramble flower:
There was a dead mallard in the canal
Veered off canal to go through the Canch – mainly to see the roses.
Rejoined canal at Bracebridge. Switched camera lens for landscapes.
|Someone on Flickr commented on the reinforcements on Manton rail viaduct: they are made of chunks of rail line clamped together|
buzzed me several times
