Wendy S said:Mike we haver found that the reserves get a lot quieter from mid afternoon onwards. We call this our Golden Hour as the birds seem to be feeding up for the night and heading off to communal roosts. We are lucky that it is only a few minutes drive home afterwards.
If only that were the case here. The two closest reserves are very popular at the best of times, and they regularly report car parks full within an hour of opening them!
To add to that, the footpaths are narrow making social distancing impossible, which is a great shame, because they are good reserves, and full of life wherever you look, at any time of year.

Food shortages? ... just looking on the bright side!
Maybe raid some of the lorries parked across the road! Lol
Over 3000 lorries now parked up over the road from mine, often hooting to indicate displeasure, helicoptors constantly flying over, maybe newshounds? Army moved in to carry out mass testing as drivers can only cross channel if tested negative ... positive testers must be put up in special hotels to isolate ... only a small village here with locals upset at the increased risk of virus being spread & food supplies being pillaged! Certainly is a different Xmas!!
Feel desperately sorry for all the guys plunged into this situation whilst only doing their jobs!
TeeJay said:I hope the vaccine isn't held up. I'm due for my second jab on 5th Jan
Mr Blair is suggesting that second jabs get ignored but get used for vaccinating more people, on the basis that twice as many people with 91% protection is better than the original number with 95% protection. Stay safe.
