Can’t believe the awful weather yesterday (Thursday) non-stop heavy rain and it was cold! There was snow nearby as well! I foolishly cycled to Wick Court for my Story Telling in the wonderful Round House. I did have waterproofs and overshoes but didn’t really prepare me for roads awash with water. Quite challenging riding through the water -thankfully nothing like Yorkshire.
I had to do a winter bird survey near Slimbridge today-ground of course was saturated. Highlight was seeing two Great White Egrets and a Cettis Warbler. Many Fieldfares overhead as well. Also managed on my way there to see the Shag (a sea bird) that has been on the local canal for the last week as well.
