We spent a week in Sheffield recently where the three writer sisters (Sue, Danuta and Penny) spent 3 days doing a writers retreat. During the week I spent some time walking along the Porter Brook looking for Dippers. On the first walk (April 18) I spotted a wren building its nest on the vertical bank opposite. I followed its progress on every walk thereafter. I also photographed some fungi and a slime mould in Nute and Ken's garden.
