March 2nd – Over between Clayhanger Village and the canal, behind the big house the new pond – created by the removal of Walsall Wood Colliery’s spoil heap in the 1980s – is enjoying its annual but brief period of visibility.
In spring, before the leaves come, once can see the pond, and it looks healthy and full of life.
As the leaves grow, it will become impossible to see – but it will frequently be heard when the roosting waterfowl that love it so will squabble and bicker.
The fact that nature is thriving on this once very polluted, barren place fills me with joy.
