We’re looking after Rosie the reluctant cocker spaniel while her mum recovers from a nasty fall. This means I’ve been more preoccupied with telescopic leads and poo-bags than cameras during our recent evening walks. So apologies for there being fewer updates and photos than usual.

The annual extravagance of cow parsley has suddenly sprung up alongside the Carr track and Burlees Lane. Thanks to lockdown, I’ll no doubt miss the even more fabulous show at Burton Marshes this year. But what we have is certainly good enough. Cow parsley season is one of the highlights of our annual cycles, as far as I’m concerned.
