Friday 16 January

We set off and thought it was going to be one of those mornings, temperature was above freezing, the wind was still a nuisance.

 We had two new swans on the lodge - the Adult we think is the one from Common Bank but it has picked up the very dark juvenile our own juvenile was hanging about with them, our resident swans are busy on the top lodge at the moment but I am sure these two will be gone as soon as Billy Swan returns.

Snowdrop - Galanthus nivalis just peeping through - I am showing these as within minutes of taking the photo it was covered by hailstone, we were all trying to get some cover even the dogs as they were stinging as they hit.

 Within minutes they had covered the paths, they also created large floating patches on the lodge looked like foam.

It was a complete transformation
Some were quite large and stung as they came down.

Take Care

  1. Wow- that must not have been much fun to get home in. Sure is an interesting look though.


Let me know you looked in :)
