My stroll around Park Lime Pits today included a gentle blast from the past – teenagers swinging out over the lake on a rope swing, and swimming. With that, and the footpaths and steps becoming slightly overgrown at the moment, the place really did resemble its 1970’s self for a while…….
Anyway, I headed over to my usual quiet spot beside the small pool.
Approaching the spot through the trees, stealthily, I spotted a large shoal of Bream, with a few Roach tagging along for the ride. I love watching fish cruising along the pool, just below the surface – I could watch for hours, and usually do.
Theres also a sizeable Pike which patrols the margins, but he’s a wily old creature. The slightest movement or vibration from the bank sends him scuttling off into the depths. The best shot I’ve managed to get of him is nothing more than a fuzzy, Pike-shaped blob. I’ll persevere though . . . . .
