More Wateriness

 Sunday saw me taking a long hike out to Hawton and then across to Farndon, looking for winter thrushes along the Hawton-Farndon road.

In the past I've seen a lot of fieldfare in the fields along this lane, but not a sausage. Not seen a single winter thrush yet, but I'm rather more urban in this flat than I used to be. 

Willow Holt was, as expected, very boggy looking, boggy in the sense of being completely underwater in places. No way through here! But hey, it was a two hour walk in the open air, and I enjoyed it.

I'm recapturing the enjoyment of trundling along listening to Radio 4. When the plays are good, and the programmes interesting, I take such joy in it!

  1. Crikey, hope you had long waterproof boots on.

  2. It looks as though winter ducks might be more likely than winter thrushes. The orchards around here are having their annual clean-up by the Fieldfares.

  3. Notice how the church has kept its feet dry?

  4. I do enjoy your wanders around the countryside near where I spent my childhood - only about twenty miles away and yet in a diffetent world. Thanks for the super photos Si

  5. It's been a very different world in every sense!

  6. My heart goes out to everyone who is affected by the flooding . Also all the poor creatures caught up in it . Amazing photos . Beautiful Church :)
