The Wildfowl of Diss, An Old Chapel and the Moocows of Suffolk - 29th August 2005

After posting off the latest Open University assignment, a rainbow is spotted in the new fountain on the Mere in Diss, which deserves photographing. This, of course, leads to more photos of the various wildfowl that are thronging the edge of the Mere, being fed bread and other morsels by random passers-by. Later, severe Bank Holiday boredom sets in so a trip to photograph the old cowsheds at Dairy Farm is undertaken: the Boy Phil is out rounding up bales of errant straw, and the cows are ever-curious.

The Mere

A girl with very pink hair has a photo taken. Someone has sprayed out 'no' from the sign, which is appropriate as Madgett's is a cycling shop...
