Weekly Water Photo 04 of 52

I was out for a jog this morning and came across this rather brave heron. My route takes me along the canal so it must be fairly used to seeing folk. Usually when I see them and they see me on the Kelvin we are separated by a good hundred yards or so – this […]

Tenuous fishing photos 34,35,36,37,38, 39 & 40/52

How crap am I at keeping to my own schedule of a photo a week? Answers on a postcard…

It seems that people do not want to fish as it has not been […]

The curse of city fishing! This is also where I cut off … I will walk down to the canal from here!

First week of the season eh?
