There were numerous demonstrations in Cambridge - consume less, reuse, recycle, while people were snapping up 'bargains'. Our bus was late getting in through the traffic, and very late leaving in the early afternoon, but we were at least carbon saints. All pix with 21mm lens.

Some images taken during our stay in the town. Top is the Museum, then some pix in the shopping area and the chip shop where we had a fish supper. The cross and the water levels are from St Margaret's church; strange that the level was higher in Jan. 1978 than in 1953 when the floods killed thousands. Captain George Vancouver was born in Lynn and gave his name to the Canadian town.
We went to Frampton hoping to catch a glimpse of a Merlin and two were seen, but not by us. The weather was relentlessly dull and overcast. All the water birds and ducks and geese went up and when they came down, a Peregrine was sitting on a fence post.

The Ouse Washes were doing their job today, and the reserve was under water except for the main hide. A Coot had found a piece of potato and the Pochards were not interested. A Cetti's Warbler had nowhere to hide, while a more alert Pochard was in danger from low-flying heavies!
