Down the Drain

By Lillian  
Been after this chap called Walt for many weeks
comes out occasionally but never when I was there
another great day with Dave and Chris at BWC
This is the elusive Water Vole

this is for you Ade!

was a really hot day, 25 degrees also day before
was hot on the lake... so looking like a beetroot
Off to London in morning

Thank you for your awards on the Crested Grebe family
loads to process!
