September 2nd : The horses, Max and Merlen, are now in the first field, rather earlier than last year.
Visitors to the Reserve are asked not to feed them and are also urged to keep their dogs on a lead if there is any doubt about how they behave with horses.
PLEASE DON'T FEED US!
PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEAD!
September 4th : The lake is totally covered in duckweed. Swimming through this layer is hard work so the ducks swim in Indian file, letting the first duck clear a channel.
