Cool and on the dull side (at first) but it has picked-up sun-wise over last hour. Smiley faces on the steamers up at Bury South.
A clever duck on the Res. too. While the Mallards paddled about after bits of (wholemeal, not stodgy white stuff!) bread, the smaller duck with the white sides dived under water, then came up right under the bread and nicked it!
But then, along Banana Walk, shock horror! A Hogweed plant! I’ve a feeling it’s a UK version (Heracleum Sphondylium) rather than the introduced Giant Hogweed (Heracleum Mantegazzanium) but hey, who cares what type or name it is if you’ve got second-degree leg or arm burns! The plant spotted is ‘youngish ‘ yet, with the rounded rather than spiky leaves. But take care along the top section of Banana Walk. Walking up it’s on the right.
