Places - Fletcher Moss

4 Feb 2021 12:10AM   Views : 585 Unique : 447

There is an enclosed park in South Manchester called Fletcher Moss, which we had not really been aware of as it isn't in an obvious place. In fact, it is part of the flood plain for the River Mersey and when the river is dangerously high then Fletcher Moss is deliberately flooded. As this is a formal park, albeit it in effect a valley, that is a bit unusual, but there are warning signs at the entrance and a substantial part of it could be totally immersed. It's also great for photography.

A Butterfly Flutters By

More than one butterfly as we were in the Butterfly House in Stratford-on-Avon. Armed with the Pentax K-3 II and the SMC Pentax-DA 18-135mm WR lens I was not concerned about the lens or camera being damaged by the high humidity, although pleasant su...
