Look at his blog and you will see that he pursues his dream proactively...
Your faithful blogger's dream is pursued in a more leisurely fashion. It is a simple dream, that where the river and its inhabitants come first, we all win. Duck Holds Wood and the short length of the Derbyshire Wye that it straddles, is a place where that dream has been lived for some years now. On assuming the tenancy, long sessions of wandering with Warren, the Head River Keeper, by the water and through the land, at the same time incorporating hours of serious thought and intense conversation, led to various decisions about the management of this very special place.
