I hope you will enjoy this very varied post and that some of you will be encouraged to share it. Talking of sharing, here are a couple of recent comments about this blog from twitter:
BIRDS, BOATS AND PLANES IN KING’S LYNN
In the break between innings of the delayed women’s ashes match at Worcester (yesterday was washed out entirely, so the whole game is happening on the reserve day) I went out for a walk and was delighted to see a cormorant in residence.

Vox Political make another appearance in this blog, providing the signpost to another DWP related horror story, this one involving a suicide…
1)The VP ‘signpost’ piece.
2)The full article courtesy of the Daily Star.
My final link is to this piece about providing the police with training for dealing properly with autistic people.
While at my parents in East Rudham for Sunday lunch yesterday I saw these two leaflets…

Today has been a bumper day for infographics…
A FEW FINAL PICTURES
I bring this post to a conclusion with these pictures from East Rudham yesterday…
