Thursday 8 September

Another wet morning - managed to avoid most of the showers.

 Heron on the Top Lodge - the water level has been lowered for the winter months.
 What has got the young swans attention?
 An outsider has landed on the lodge and Mum is charging it -
 it didn't stay long it was soon off.
I wondered where Billy the resident male was and have been informed he's at swan sanctuary due to being tangled in fishing line, hope he is okay and back on the water soon. 
 Bracken - Pteridium aquilinum
 Footpath on the rucks.
 Plenty of Fungi about with this damp weather.

 Fungi heaven
Lesser Burdock - Arctium minus
