We dont have many reservoirs in Nth Norfolk , if any . Our son sent pics of a walk he took at The Dovestones & The Chew reservoirs near Oldham it was quite shocking to see such lack of water. From where he stood to take a pic , he would in normal times have been under 100ft of water.

A scene of high summer Dennis . Looks like one chap's having a good loz and getting some U.V 's . That shade to his left looks most inviting.
I wonder Dennis, were there any Cormorants on the ironwork ?
I don't think I've ever passed by without there being .

I believe there was Poet, I took a couple of photos but they were too far away to get a good shot. Mind you I’m no expert on birds.
I’m becoming a regular around these lakes, this must be the third or fourth time I have been up there this year. You couldn’t ask for a better place for a peaceful walk around the water.

A nice walk round the Reservoirs, I understand all our water comes from the Lake district, I think water from here went to Heinz, so I was told years ago.

The Wigan area water comes from Lower Rivington Reservoir.

Only if Brucie plays his cards right Rene…will the cards fall in his favour… otherwise he will be locked in the cupboard in Fanny’s bedroom!
