I spent much of my weekends in the fens again. My wife and my oldest son had a lovely walk along the Counter Wash drain in Mepal towards the old pumping station and onto to Manea. We were rewarded by seeing a pair of Great Crested Grebes courting. The walk has inspired me to work on a painting (study) of a view looking from the drain towards Chatteris.
Another walk took us through Ramsey Forty Foot and Benwick, it was cold blustery day and I must admit the highlight was a nice pint of Deuchars IPA in a friendly pub in Ramsey.
