Having visited my brother-in-law in hospital, we stopped at Bakewell on our journey home. We purchased a bag of chips and sat at the river side to eat them. Whilst we were watching the water-birds I noticed a small group of merganser swimming along amongst the geese, ducks and gulls.
Back at home I went to remove a pile of twigs and leaves that I had pruned from the blackcurrant bushes the previous day. This little fellow was hiding beneath the cuttings.
