It was a bit drizzly this morning so I thought not a day to go out. However, it was dry this afternoon, so I jumped in my jalopy and went to Alkborough Village. The view over the river from the maze.
I walked down a footpath which took me to Alkborough Flats. A very popular place for bird watching. Here is a blog post about the sorts of birds that can be seen here. There are information boards, and hides that enthusiasts can sit in.
There are gravel paths, these get flooded in the winter months when the water level in the river rises. Today they were dry. I walked down a long path determined to get to the end of it, at Trent Falls.
Lots of marshy boggy areas. Sadly I didn't see any birds apart from a lone swan.
Almost the end of the path, through the gate and turn right.
That's as far as I can go before I fall into the river. Turn round and go back. I have never walked right to the end before, I was curious so I went for it. The grasses were taller than me.
I need to go shopping tonight, getting a bit low on a few things. Thanks for popping in. Have a nice weekend. Toodle pip. ilona
