Not much about

It’s always amusing to hear someone say “there’s not much about” when you’re working your way through a nature reserve. Depends on what you mean by not much…I only saw the following at RSPB Ouse Fen this morning:

Grey Heron
Little Egret
Cormorant

I think that’s all…not much about at all. Admittedly, the person who said it was cycling…
