Cycling the Water Rail Way
Not having seen our friends Brian and Heather since the beginning of lockdown, we decided to meet up in Bardney for a ride along the Water Rail Way to Lincoln and back. It was easy to be socially distanced, but we did worry about how busy the trail might be. I the event it was no problem; no busier than usual. The weather was perfect and we had an excellent ride. It was good on the wild life front too. There were more whitethroats than I think I have ever seen/heard in a day. We also saw or heard blackckcap, reed and sedge warbler, common tern, many swans including on nests and with cygnets, my first swift of the year and a cuckoo prospecting for nests to parasitise.
A perfect day.
