With Marta, 3 miles.
I had to finish a Scrabble game, so we didn't meet until 10 am! The weather promised rain later, and I was happy to do a short stroll after yesterday.
Sywell Country Park is near Sywell and Mears Ashby.
We had a coffee before starting, then walked along the reservoir path anti-clockwise. There is a lot of conservation work, and cutting back of vegetation in progress just now. The text below talks about how beavers used to maintain wetland - "Sadly the Rangers and volunteers won't be able to chew through trees ..." But they're doing their best in other ways.
|Plenty of wildfowl|
|This is a butterfly and insect garden|
On the way round we chatted to a man aged 90, who was out for his daily walk. An example to us all.
