Along the River Stour

Wednesday 17th June 2015

Max and I went to the river for our walk this morning. Although sunshine was promised it was a bit cloudy with a slight chill to the breeze.

I tried to avoid throwing the cone in the river for Max to chase too much, due to the ongoing limp, but I did let him have a swim.

Time for a swim

We did our normal walk and along the path I spotted a dead pole cat. They are still making a return to the area so it was a shame it was dead (I won’t post the photo). Given that it was newly deceased and I couldn’t see any obvious marks on it I’m guessing it was caught by a small terrier and shaken to death.

Back at Eye Bridge we crossed over for Max to have a quick play on the other side. I’m not sure if you can see him standing at the far end of the bridge in this photo.

And lastly, a photo from the bridge – always worth taking.

By the time we finished our walk it was starting to warm up a little, even though it was still cloudy. So in the afternoon I spent some time weeding out in the garden – a never ending task!

Jez and I went for a walk in the New Forest at the Wilverly Enclosure.
