Yesterday, Lathem had 32 Bewick and the 3 Whooper Swans at Cressage. Twenty one is the most I've ever seen in the county and that was over twenty years ago. When I arrived, all I could find were the 8 Bewick's Swans with 55+Mute Swans, although there could of been more swans below the dip in the field.

The River Tern flowing out of Walcot Mill with the River Roden joining onto it. All my family came from this area and in this shot of the Roden is where I learnt to swim, over 30 years ago. This is where I also saw my first ever Water Rail!
