Andrew Colquhoun of the Friends of Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve reflects back over the pleasures nature provides during the difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, sharing his early morning walks. Enjoy reflecting on this evocative reflection he paints of the joys of nature in the park that is just on our doorstep. Perhaps one aspect of a dreadful pandemic is the “golden gift of time, to be as well as to do.”
