WHAT has happened to our Bridgemere wildlife?
I took this photo about three years ago. At that time as well as the beautiful swans we had ducks (mallard) in plenty, moorhens, coots, the occasional heron and once a small egret.
This year the swans have been removed – nobody seems to know why but possible factors are Health and Safety; there are plans for a cycle track along the Horsye stream. Along with the swans all the other water birds seem to have disappeared as well.
But then why should anyone care, we have virtual reality haven’t we?
