Re: Curry Moor--Wildfowl bonanza !!

Please note the road across Curry Moor is now closed due to flooding. Several stretches of the river bank now resemble the Niagara Falls !!, with water pouring down onto the fields. However large numbers of wildfowl visible from the roadside pull-in at the Lyng side.
