This week I visited the local RSPB Centre near Silverdale, which has nature trails close by that are the delight of visitors and locals alike.
Unquestionably Arthur Ransome would have been at home here!
I asked about the birds mentioned in Wilde’s summer poem Garden of Eros.
Much of the wildlife and feathered friends mentioned were available now or in June.
No lovers have materialised yet, but it would be wonderful to capture the idyllic settings of the Lancashire summer in a voice-over.
Grim up north? What on earth do you mean?
Read Swallows and Amazons, folks!
Even better, visit Silverdale!
