Along the way there were teams of volunteers clearing the rubbish on the banks and from the water where they could. Well done to them.
At the basin, a BW boat was working with them using his grabber thingy and lifting things out.
So many Coots nest sitting now. Some sit tight as we pass and some scuttle off quickly, leaving us a gilmpse of what's under them.
7 or 8 in this one.
Mr Heron, watching as we pass by, keeping so still, then
off he goes to land a little further on.
No sun today, with a chilly wind, it feels very different to the last week of hot weather, so we lit the fire before we stopped and were glad of a hot shower before dinner.
