How cool is this? We always planned to remove this screening once the reeds matured, and over the next week it will be finished to leave a lovely open stroll to Bridge screen.

nice one Mike, thanks for the update and good to see the willow fence removed now that the reeds have grown :). Might head over there on Wednesday as weather looks not too bad.

In reply to HAZY:
Tomorrow and Thursday are looking good weather wise, sadly I'm on parcel duty tomorrow, Mrs PR is working and has a new tab being delivered, or I'd be up there.
But hopefully I'll be up there in the not too distant future.
HAZY said:All plans changed now Mike and we're heading to LM again for 6 nights ;) Travelodge for £27.95 pn (apart from Saturday night which is £39,95 that night so can't beat less than £200 for 6 nights !
That is a good price, you'd be mad not to go, enjoy LM
We've just checked in, motel very quiet :) good room at the back upstairs at the end of the corridor so no passing foot traffic :) Just had a brief trip to LM, lovely afternoon here but only did a quick recce outside the back of the visitor centre and Lilian's hide. Plenty of waterfowl around: shovelers, teal, pintail, snipe, and spotted the female Marsh harrier hunting for dinner !
