On a river walk on 6th August, Brian L, Lesley M, Mike D and Val enjoyed  a wander round Lancasters nursery, then by the old Adams yard (now Adams Gardens) the flowers (?) on a monkey puzzle tree in a garden were fabulous, and Lesley spotted a low flying Buzzard.

By the river we surmised about none of us having seen the seal which has been around for a couple of months, when all of a sudden, there it was, hauled up on the opposite bank in the sunshine.

Excellent views. Just a single Mute Swan on the river, a flying Mallard, and a Grey Heron in a field at the confluence.  A flock of Long-tailed Tits were calling from willows by the river, a lovely Flowering Rush

was in the river with Banded Demoiselles fluttering nearby, Linnets flew up from the bushes, and we saw a Roe Deer munching away in a field to the right.
