Just come back from camping and thought I`d have a hour at CB this morning and saw this.
Is it a Bird , is it a Hide NO its a bird (woman) inside a tent! camping on the footpath by cromwell bridge. Just had to post this.
Fogot to mention a roe deer in the trees L/H/S between the canal & the calder heading towards the lagoon just before the bridge over to the feeding station.

Thanks Chris
We had a similar encounter with a tent on the canal tow-path a couple of months ago. Just what possesses these people to camp on tarmac and not grass beats me.

The tent is owned by a nice lady who lives in it alone. She moves around the area and she's always immaculately presented whenever I see her. I would imagine she camps on the towpath to make it easier to access the shops and find her way about in the dark - plus she moves her belongings (and tent) around on a small trolly. I can't imagine how lonely and depressing these last few months of rain have been for her.

Many thanks for the information Anonymous. It's not very nice when life comes to this.
