Ross-on-Wye Nature Watch

Above. Affectionately known as 'General Custard,' Ross-on-Wye's yellow Mute Swan, Cygnus timidus has returned again in 2005 and has been recently spotted on the River Wye. I took this photograph from the Rope Walk, a little up stream of the Hope & Anchor public house. Being a regular visitor to the Hope & Anchor, The General likes to take scraps of food, by hand from diners in the beer garden. It is not known why he is bright yellow. A theory has been put forward however that this is due to earlier generations of local Mute Swans feeding from experimental genetically modified rape seed.

Below. Following on from last week's report on the frog spawn in my natural garden pond, the first collection of tadpoles finally hatched last Tuesday, 22nd March. The photograph below was taken yesterday morning, Easter Holiday Monday.

Archive Ross-on-Wye

This week's archive photographs are again from the archives of the Ross Gazette collection. I do not know the exact year they were taken but I would imagine, judging by the pole in the top photograph that the month was May, possibly 1970s.

Ming's is in the left of the bottom photograph, so that suggests early to mid 1980s. Both photographs are taken from the Market House apron.

If you recognize yourself or can give an exact date to either photograph, please let me know. I cannot credit the photographer(s) in this instance as I do not know who he/she/they was/were.
