Plastic bottle trapped in Mountain stream

By Dr John Macfarlane ARPS

This split over/underwater image revealed a discarded yellow topped plastic bottle trapped within the water smoothed under rocks.. It was probably dropped by a fell walker. To me, the environmental messages included: discarded plastic in a wild environment, the link between the longevity of rocks and plastic, the need to carry drinking water in an environment with many streams - probably for fear of streams contaminated by infection or chemicals.
