For a start, there’s water back on Canford Heath, so not only was there water in his favourite gully but the stream has made a re-appearance.
So, as you can see, this afternoon Jez, Max and I went to Canford Heath for our walk. I parked at Asda as I needed to nip in and get some chicken wings for the dogs (I’d run out!) and we walked up the Red Brick path. But not before Jez and Max had picked up the scent of something and run off into the front garden of the man who doesn’t seem to appreciate dogs running around his front garden. So there I was, running round the garden trying to catch them. Eventually I got them both on the lead and we made our way up onto the heath.
After we had crossed the stream I walked the dogs on up to the top of Longfleet Drive and we then headed back down towards the Red Brick path. En route I managed to find some unspoilt Fly Agaric at long last.
And then after we’d gone through the gate at Hotchkiss Cross Max was in his element again – or, to be more precise, he was in sweet chestnut heaven.
Fortunately our trip back down the Red Brick was far less ‘exciting’ than our trip up it.

There were stormy skies over Upton Heath.
