Last chance tomorrow lunchtime.....here's hoping!!!!!!
All was not lost safariwise though. A school group was having a rare old time pond dipping at the Solaris Centre and managed to haul out a great many Sticklebacks including the mother and father of them all, some of the biggest Sticklebacks you'll ever see.
