Pretty quiet at the beach by Languard Fort Felixstowe, I guess it is the seals that draws the crowds

Now whole areas are roped off, there are wardens and a one way system for walking. I think we may be better off walking in the City of London, there is no one there.

Yes Reg I'd heard about that from my stepmother who still resides in Norfolkshire wink apparently the idiot visitors were getting so close to the pups that the mothers were deserting them and they were having to be picked up by the local sanctuary to be hand reared.

As you say it's probably safer for your son in London Village right now, than we are in sticksville.

A local country park (Pembrey) has stayed open but with restrictions.
Here’s a copy of the notification
Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Office phones open 10am - 4pm

Level 4 Restrictions - Polite reminder as per Welsh Government guideline

Car Park is open for visitors with specific health or mobility issues to drive in for exercise from 6am - 6pm.

STAY HOME, PROTECT THE NHS

Please maintain social distance from other visitors and keep dogs on leads out of courtesy to other park users.

All facilities within the park will be closed

Apparently there were large numbers driving there despite a no drive to exercise instruction.
I regularly go there as I can walk through the forestry adjacent for miles and not see anyone. Not been there since the driving limits in lockdown 1, 2 and now 3.Shame. I just walk the dog in the area nearby now and that is seeing bigger numbers using it, many cars in the carparks. I tend to go out early morning before the numbers increase. In lockdown 1 the carparks were closed and Police had foot patrols. Lockdown 2 and 3 with higher health issues and carparks open? Where’s the logic? Especially as a second wave was being predicted last summer.

Yesterday our frozen lake was so full of Ice Fishing folk from Denver that it reminded me of when the tide was out at Blackpool on a Bank Holiday, it's a global phenomenon.

For years, we've walked around the margins of the local fields. Wonderful to see wildlife and watch nature through the seasons. Quiet and peaceful.

Had to give up now as the paths are as busy as motorways. Whole tribes accompanied by feral kids are everywhere. No attempt as social distancing or move aside when we approach.

My hope is that the novelty of traipsing round a muddy field in trainers and sweat pants will soon loose out to the attractions of their 65 inch TV 's.
