Litter pick on way to work

I planned to just pick the dumped stuff I saw at the side of the path mentioned in my Tues 26/02/19 PM event post. But of course I got carried away picking stuff that had gathered in the water before I got there! The reeds are looking noticeably clean which I am very happy about because it means the ducks and moorhens don't have to share the space with nasty dirty contaminated toxic bits of plastic and stinky alcohol bottles and tins :( I had already filled one bag for life by the time I reached the site where the big pile was heaped so I couldn't clear it all but managed to fit another bag for life and one of them blue plastic bag that had been discarded. I got a thanks, a couple of enthusiastic 'morning's' and a very smiley impressed look from other walkers. The swan gave me a little cheer too as I walked past her she thought I was leaving her without feeding but I walked on to a spot a few metres away where there was grass, gave some to her, which she had a bit of then swam right up to me, for a stroke it seemed, but I just spoke to her and said I would give her some more next time where the grass is plentiful (it wasn't where we were) and went to go to the end of the towpath to empty my rubbish in the bin...which unfortunately was overflowing and hasn't been emptied since I reported it way in advance on 18th Feb!
