Finally had a day to get out with not working today and the
weather being decent for a change, so I took the dog for a walk
around Cromwell Bottom and it was nice to see all the good work
they've been doing down there. Plenty of Herons flying about
collecting material for their nests mostly seen from the car park,
I didn't stay long in the viewing area as other photographers weren't
very pleased when my dog started crying as I tied her up for ten minutes
so I thought I'd better be respectful and leave. I then took a walk down by
the river and what a fantastic job they've done, where at one time it was a
swamp you can now walk around with pleasure and not get caked in mud
and you can now walk down to the river without being attacked with
nettles and brambles so well done to the volunteers you've done a
