    Opening Day Reports

    But...the most memorable thing about the weekend, and not in a good way, was that I was bitten to pieces by some critters, don't know what they were, never felt a thing at the time, but crikey did they itch during the night. At least a dozen bites on both arms, both legs and my head, they still itch like crazy. Never had anything like that before." We have got the same problem in our garden at the moment ,there not mozys , they are knat,s, have a stripped body when looked at close, waiting for the bats to get in gear, also last year dragon flies the size of spitfires patrolled the garden,it,s a real pain for a couple of weeks or so(we are surrounded by dykes where they breed

    Save Our Broads (bins)

    so true, but it,s at the smaller level in the eco system you need to worry about, ie bugs, has a knock on effect, when did your windscreen get covered in bugs on a night run lately, i cover 45 thou a year...hardly any bugs on the motor, bugs feed birds, birds feed anything that can catchem ect, ect, the land is going the same way as the sea,s ,the north sea is dead through overfishing and polution, answer you cry? cul the human race! ie stop any more breeding china has to , what,s wrong with one child instead of two?.....the answer is the world runs on money which requires growth.....you need more workers for more growth......then death, for all, sorry the next generations are doooooooooooooooooommed!!

    Why Does Reedham Have A Quay Ranger?

    The wife allways complains that the ranger at Reedham never helps us......reason? we should know what we are doing! Must admit there is one guy there who is bad tempered and grumpy, but that dosn,t stop him doing a good job.

    Ambulance On Bbc1

    Off on a tangent from this ,on the way back from Barydon to st olaves , Wendesday we came across a hire boat(no names no pipedrill!) disabled 400m around the corner from the public moorings, mud weight down , asked if they were ok they indicated yes, waiting for help, the help came in the form of Spirit of Braydon, as we found out , as all of sudden there was a very loud voice on said boats pa that they were intending to moor against a hire boat on the full public mooring at st olaves, the poor people were enjoying there lunch complete with beer and wine ect....but fair play to them , they helped in anyway they could , doning life jackets and following the very clear instructions from Spirit of braydens skipper, who moored up beside them making a tripple mooring. All boats were moved up to get the stricken vessel in , a very slick operation and a credit to everyone , well done BA crew......job well done.

    Boat,s All Over.

    The moorings at the Bell st olaves are currently full, with one hire boat very near the bridge, looks like a club meet, as most boat s are i think Normans.

    Herringfleet Moorings

    i think you would have to make an enquiry about the path from the public moorings to the mill, depends how old the signs are , if before the crow act they may be out of date, ie The river continues through Herringfleet Marshes. The marshes stretch from here to St Olaves and are overlooked by Herringfleet Hills, part of the Somerleyton Estate. Recently the hills have been classed as open country as defined under the CRoW Act. Together with the Broads Authority the estate has opened up the area to walkers and provided a car park and way marked paths leading to Herringfleet Smock Mill.
