Day Out at Last

 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
 fantastic job.

 Birds seen today were Heron, Robin, Blue & Great Tit, Wren, Blackbird,
 Magpie, Crow, Bullfinch, Reed Bunting, 2 Buzzards, Goosanders, Dipper,
 Nuthatch, Jay, Goldfinch, Cormorant, LTT, and Kestrel.

 Garden -: Goldfinch, Dunnock, Blackbird, Magpie, Collared Doves,
                 Wren, Robin, Jackdaw, Wood Pigeon, Chaffinch, Greenfinch.
                 Blue Tit, Starling, Crows and Gulls above and a Kestrel.
