In Abingdon, there are two nature reserves looked after by the Earth Trust: Radley Lakes, and Abbey Fishponds.
For our daily walk we went along the Radley Road, then through the Abbey Fishponds.
Volunteers have laid wood chip over the path at one end.
They have also cut back the reeds. From the wetland fresh reeds grow.
At the cross paths, near the centre, we saw a gentleman coming the other way, and using the choreography learned during the lockdown, we walked up the earthwork, while he took the low path, and said hello as we passed.
We crossed Audlett Drive and then went round the Leisure Centre. It was closed but the side area was open. Some dog walkers were on the green, and one young person was using the skate park.
There is a narrow path to Barton Lane. My wife took this picture of me taking a picture through the tunnel of leaves. She liked the colours.
We then walked by Sophos and Penlon. I had a word with somebody at a distance at Penlon about their activities, and I am hoping they will send me something for a future blog post. But they do have more important things to do.
Outside the businesses on Barton Mill corner, on Audlett Drive, there was a rainbow.
Back through the Abbey Grounds my wife got this picture. The thrush had been hopping about tapping the ground, and this is the moment the thrush got the worm.
