On Mawson ponds: exercise, regeneration, hope

You gain a new appreciation of your local area when you revisit the same places frequently. Here’s some photos taken during lockdown in August 2021. Especially grateful for Mawson ponds area, birds and sunsets. The 8 tiny ducklings especially lifted my spirits. Shout out to all involved in the regeneration works.
