We follow the canal upstream to Southern Washlands, a wetland nature reserve created on land that was once mainly derelict. As we approach the fishing lake we get the classic, if cliched, view of a Kingfisher, perching on an old fishing club sign.
There are only a few duck on the lake but there is a flock of about 20 Tufted Duck on the river nearby. A Cormorant flies overhead.
