Was that a disapproving Kingfisher glance?

by: Peter A.

Today, perched on the hedge above Hilly Orchard Bridge sat the resident Kingfisher, brilliantly illuminated by the autumn sun.

But below, following  the recent rains, lay a collection of detritus washed down and caught by the pontoon placed across the canal just in case of an oil leak from the unfortunate Annette II.

In amongst the plant matter sat numerous examples of today's single use plastics - a sorry sight.
Speaking of Annette II.  She now rests right side up with her bottom on the bottom awaiting falling water levels and plan B to kick in.
