Cromwell Walk

            Decided on a walk around Cromwell Bottom today
            with the wife on a gloomy day after Breakfast at the
            Watermill, shame there was no sunshine today.
            Still a lot of work going on at the bridge after the
            flood damage, went past the cabins hoping to see the
            Willow Tit but just Blue Tits on the feeders then on
            up to the weir where another wall as collapsed into
            the river and a mink had just been seen across the river
            by Nigel one of the members, next on up to the ponds
            where 2 Dunnock, 6 Long Tailed Tits, Great & Blue Tits,
            and 2 Wren were seen, we then had half hour at the bird
            feeding area where just the usual birds were seen but a
            Reed Bunting and 3 Jays showed themselves and the Robins
            eating off of our hands, next on to the lagoon hoping for
            Water Rail but only saw 2 Coots and then I nearly fell in the
            Lagoon while trying to make it over the makeshift bridge
            silly old me, nice surprise when we got home though with
            a Sparrowhawk in the garden.

                                          Why did I do it

                                          Squirrel on wife's head
