More Running in the Snow

I was out again today for 10km, feet crackling on the frosted, beautiful crystalline snow.

I did the tour of the two lakes, both part-frozen and well populated with gulls standing on the ice looking puzzled. The kingfisher was on patch again, underneath the Barnby Lane bridge.

When the kingfisher flies off, it looks more like an exotic moth than a bird, and its stubby form is really quite ungainly.

I think the kingfisher dives better than it climbs!

So, through Beacon Hill Park which was fairly quiet, then to Rumbles for tea. Perfectly nice to sit in the sun with a hot tea! You should try it.
