Had a quick walk to West Hartford this evening as the sun was setting. 8 Oystercatchers and a few Lapwing were at the far side of the main pool. Teal and Moorhen were calling loudly from the marshy Field.
The only other thing of note were 8 Pied Wagtails feeding together on the road outside the entrance to the new fire station, (which looks shit by the way).

To end on a bad note, the amount of litter left by the site workers at WH is shocking. It's alright putting up a sign saying please put your litter in the bin provided but when the bin doesn't have a lid its pointless.
Also it's Northumberland and in case they hadn't noticed it does tend to be windy most of the time so the bin will blow over.

Crammy - the bins and signs are very welcome. The problem is with who will pick up the residual crap dropped over the last few months. The trademen are not paid to do so, and the employers do not pay them to do so. So I guess, when you and I are passing.........

And I assume you were the person sitting at the big flash's edge last night when me and my dog (whos sh*te I do bag and bin) and daughter were wandering about.

It was me, and I'm not paid to pick it up either.
Its the wrong attitude to have I know but the council do get paid to pick it up and don't.
