Keep Your Distance - Mothering Sunday - Covid 19

A friend woke me early with a phone call to make sure I was OK. I was in the middle of a dream, I was in Dorset and there had been a heavy snowfall!

So I was awake and back to reality and the sun was shinning.  I got dressed and walked to Cherry Hinton Park keeping my distance from joggers, dog walkers and a couple of guys wearing boxing gloves who were practicing boxing manoeuvres.  Here are a few shots that I took on my walk.

Eastbourne - Visiting Patrick

I went to see my Uncle.  Traffic was light along the M11, M25, M23 and M27 most of the road was taken up with lorries and white vans.  The service station was very quite maybe 20 people in total and I think I was the eldest! No children in sight. Once in Eastbourne the traffic was busy and everyone seemed to be buzzing about as usual so unlike the rest of the country. However, people were panic buying and I couldn't get any fruit or vegetables for my uncle before I left. He can't get out alone for sure and certainly should not be shopping. We walked along the seafront to take the sea-air and feel some of the sunshine. He was disappointed that I was not taking him out for lunch. I had cooked for him so it was dinner at home!

Lackford Lakes - a fairly quiet day

Although I saw the Nuthatch, Cormorant, Egret, Robin, Teal, Blue Tit, Long tailed Tit, Blackbird, Coal Tit and Wood Vole there was little activity in comparison to my last visit.   The Kingfisher flew by and rested amongst the twigs with a bug in its beak but my image was not good enough to share.

Attingham Park after the floods

The flooding had been severe in Shropshire and Shrewsbury had been cut-off.  It was impossible and unsafe to try and cross the Welsh bridge. The levels were lower when I visited and the town was now accessible.  I took a couple of images along the river before getting to Attingham Park.  There were very few people visiting the estate.
