Today was such a nice day, so I went for a litter pick.
Pulled out 2 bags of plastic, glass bottles and oddly clothing.
Someone had the great idea of chucking an entire roll of cling film in (..😑), a used condom (local doggers....or some kind of a Dr Mafesto experiment going on), but the thing that really just broke me was the bottom of the pond which exposed an absolute TONNE of plastic bags. I actually was gobsmacked that so many are in there, just rotting away, caught in nests, catching in beaks. .
On the photos these are the black lumps - these are bags which are now exposed as the water levels have dropped. .
Someone please ban all plastics, and invent a new alternative material. Don't even get me started on "compostable" plastic aka biggest scam ever. .
