"This is ridiculous, why do they let the reeds grow so high? We have driven all the way down here, walked around all afternoon and seen absolutely nothing."I see the RSPB's attempts to turn the Newport masses into eco-warriors is going well.
PS. Perhaps somebody could explain the installation of a large, purple, concrete dragon next to the lighthouse. I can see the relevance of metal Bittern and Water Rail sculptures; I can even see the, albeit limited, benefit of bits of a large wooden dragonfly strewn about the place, but a cheap cartoonesque concrete dragon? What the fucking-fuckety-fuck-fuck is that doing on a NNR?
[Addendum: the dragon is fibreglass (only the plinth is concrete) and it is part of a "unique, world-class art event",... no, really it is. For more information see here,... interestingly they're not Welsh dragons, they're Polish (cue Daily Mail-esque rant, "These Polish dragons, they come over here, steal our dragons jobs,...")]
