Speed of life

Boat speed limit sign near the entrance to Rockland Broad

This image was taken from virtually the same position as the boat shot posted on Monday - its just looking in the opposite direction. I suppose that this shot goes to show that even this summer has had its brighter moments but note the rainbow in the background.

The broads have a 3mph speed restriction to limit the amount of bow wash from the boats, limiting the erosion of the banks, which in turn helps preserve wildlife.

The amount of wildlife around the broads is amazing and include some rare species of birds. I actually spotted my first Kingfisher not far from here, perched on a branch looking for fish.
