Among the meadows of Alkrington Woods you'll not only find orchids and other wild flowers but these wooden carvings. One a field mouse but as for the other I'm not too sure.

Well it's very hot for the UK and we've not had rain for a few weeks so I expect that soon we'll be issued with warning about water shortage.
I await the hosepipe ban any day now.
What are the odds for a ban being announced next week ?
On the plus side my gas consumption is way down. Profits for E-on will be down as well this summer.

The weather has certainly improved - now too hot to walk the dog in the mid afternoon though Alkrington Woods even though it does have quite a bit of shade.
You'll find the woods and lodges at Rhodes in Middleton - a favourite fishing and dog walking spot besides the River Irk.
Plenty of bird life - Swans, Canada Geese, Tufted Duck, Mallard, Grey Wagtail, Heron and Dipper.
