Having been inactive since getting up (sorting photos again) and with a brief lull in the torrential rain, I took myself off for a short walk. These signs were on a bridge further back along the towpath. Wouldn't it be great if those speeding cyclists could read!!! I know I'm being cynical but only a small minority actually do slow down!
Only just made it back to FS before the heavens opened. We had thought of moving on so I could get some bait at Abbots Langley. Maggots needed and they stock all sort of live bait. Well they did the last time we visited back in 2013 so fingers crossed they still do. With the inclement weather set for the rest of the afternoon, we decided to stay. I managed an hour of fishing, staying dry under the cratch cover but, with what bait I had left, sat for ages and then when the float did disappear, only small fry caught.
Took this photo yesterday and think it's a Sedge Warbler. Bit difficult to identify and my bird book is a waste of space as far as this bird is concerned. Ian being totally practical said. It's a bird!! Thanks for that luv. Helpful as always
