This morning I went for a stroll down by the coast and set off on my usual walk alongside the West Lancs Golf Course towards Hightown. It has been a couple of months since I last walked this stretch and they have now completed the fence along the perimeter of the course.
It has hardly affected my route but seems to have caused a lot of damage, leaving behind lots of churned up earth and it is now very muddy.
Of greater concern is the destruction of habitat. A section where I used to go to photograph Orchids and the rare Star of Bethlehem has been destroyed. It will no doubt recover but will I find the orchids next year?
Back on the coast.the Iron Men continue to gaze out to sea. They have now got a wind farm to stare at but I doubt if they notice.
A Happy New Year to all my readers.
