Yes. That’s summer. Not just the four grebe chicks getting little silver fish from their mothers.
Not the sight of the parakeets screeching in the evening as you swim past the moorhens nesting on the life buoys.
Not even the piles of litter from the masses who swarmed across the meadows at the weekend.
Just the fact that at 20 degrees it is now refreshing, not chilling to swim. It might creep up by a couple of degrees of we get a hot summer but this is pretty much as warm as it usually gets.
