Yesterday, I walked along 'my' section of the river as I do every week now. It really is a wonderful green space in the middle of a busy city. The river and the woodland around it, is home to wildlife including roe deer, otters, kingfishers and herons. Yesterday:
Insistent peeping, a young dipper flutters its wings until its hardworking parent feeds it with grubs. Then immediately the youngster is peeping again.
In the trees, a blackcap sings its rich warble and a bullfinch suddenly appears, vibrantly pink.
A grey wagtail flutters after the insects that float above the river.
The river is certainly richer for the diversity of species that live here.
