We went to a reservoir yesterday, and it was lovely (well, mostly, a bird did poo on my head but that’s another story). There were lots of birds, cormorants, herons, chaffinch, treecreepers, grebes, goldeneyes, a lesser whitethroat – even jumping fish. And this:

    Nice insect!Err, sorry for crashing into your blog but WW has gone weird and I can’t get onto it at all without it being covered in error messages. I can’t get in to tell anyone there is a problem either so finally thought you must know how to contact someone maybe…Is it just me or is everyone having a problem with it?Sorry again and thanksRosy
