Up the road or down, sometimes further afield, often not for long, we're out most days.
As often as you describe these places, I cannot pin them down in my mind! Perhaps that is due to their ever-changing nature, but they seem to contain so much.Reedmace and coypu are both new to me; but perhaps they are terms for plants that I know by other names?
The reedmace are the big bullrushy things at the water's edge which there were photographs of earlier. Coypu are big ratty water animals that originated in Canada, I think, but escaped into the countryside in Europe. They are a nuisance - I think they successfully eradicated them in the UK - because they spread diseases, destroy the banks and annoy native wildlife, so they try to keep the banks clear of cover for them. I'll try to publish some photos or maybe draw some little maps of these places!
Yes, maps and pictures would really bring the experience alive.
Thanks for explaining!
