Monday 31st July

July is over, and it must have been the hottest for a very long time. Rain is forecast and not before time. I've been told that there are fish dying in the lakes, probably due to oxygen starvation. I looked at the Fleet and the weed problem is getting worse. I noticed that someone has been dragging weed out but the little I saw on the bankside will not make a great deal of difference. Saw the swan family and they seem ok. I hope we get enough rain to make a difference.
