Walking along the New River

My latest (sub)urban wanderings took me along the New River (which, by the way, is in fact neither new nor a river), following it for 7½ miles from Enfield to Alexandra Palace. The full write-up can be found on Londonist – just click on the following link:

Birdwatching highlights included some swifts – the first ones of the year for me – and plenty of evidence of waterfowl, most notably a super-cute mallard family and a coot which had made a nest on a partially-submerged shopping-trolley!

Which, I suppose, goes to show that nature will always find a way…
