Abingdon Lock in November
Not many boats are coming through Abingdon Lock at this time of year. Somebody has given Pooh Bear a new companion to keep him warm, but he looks a little overawed.

There are now a lot of bird boxes and bird feeders at the woody area behind the lock. Frank has been keeping the birds supplied with food, and is showing here one of the devices that keep out the squirrels but allow birds to feed.

Back along the road near the Kingfisher Barn Holiday Cottages there were sheep grazing in view of Abingdon’s County Hall. The sheep will need their thick coats in the days to come.

    Well done finding a new view point for the County Hall.
    Although Pooh Bear looks a little overcome, I’m sure he is pleased to have some company.

    I worry about Tigger’s ability to cope with wet weather.

    Tigger was fished out of the river by a Kingfisher Canoe Club member on Sunday morning, hence the reason he got left at the lock.

    Tigger was there before this Sunday, has been there a few weeks and was there on Saturday morning watching the parkrun so i guess he was sent for a swim Saturday night?
