The new fish and chip shop on the one-way system in Greenwich has only been open for months at most. And yet they claim to have been serving fish since 1770.
No they haven't! ''Established 2010'' has less of a ring about it though. I wonder where they got the idea....
Anyhow, here's a house martin's nest under the eaves of a Greenwich South Street house
This nest was established shortly after the last ice age. Fact!
But I suppose if you're not allowed to take photos, it makes this a pirated image, which seems perfectly appropriate under the circumstances.
This Creek Road tree's determination not to give up has long been a sort of encouragement for me. But I noticed today that despite its regrowth, it might not be long for this world as the bark has dropped and the wood underneath is rotten. Because it's been like a personal symbol for me, I found this saddening.
