Week Commencing 20th July 2020.

Again the forecast is for rain at the start and the end of the week. Friday is forecast to be hot and sunny, but Friday is a long way away. The tides have peaked and there will be no new water till next week.

    Thank you Malcolm and what a great picture. I look forward to seeing them in September after the marathon drive from South Norfolk. A fish or two would also be good!

      Peter, I can take no credit for the picture, it was all Mark Melville’s work, he is pretty handy with his camera.
