What a sad state

What a sad state the River Slea is in, this was my first trip down the Slea for a few weeks and the water was very low and weed everywhere, the only ‘saving grace’ is that it would be impossible for boats to use the Slea at the moment.

I heard a Dabchick but didn’t see one, there were quite a few ‘teenager’ and ‘baby’ Moorhens around so they have done quite well again. Still some ducklings around but there didn’t seem to be that many that had survived to nearly ‘adult-hood’. No Swans, no Coots in fact nothing else really, even the fairly reliable Common Lizards didn’t make an appearance on such a sunny day – I would have put money on them basking in it.
