Pitsford Water - a good standby

We've had a lot of grey days, snow, rain, frost too, but mainly just greyness. That and sheer idleness have kept me inside, watching catch up TV, reading books and the like.
But today was Monday, I had two willing companions and the sun was shining. The fields are still soggy and there are big puddles on some of the minor roads, but Pitsford Water posed no problems. The usual seven mile walk round clockwise from the cafe, and then lunch to finish.
After a mid-walk scone 

The usual birdlife - coots, geese, swans and seagulls on the look out for scraps. The catkins are very much in evidence now.

Remaining inside seemed like a sensible idea these last few weeks Alison.

We had a terrific day out in Hunstanton on Jan 7th, but that was one of the few days that we saw much sun this month. And that was cold!

A great trot out, I didn't mae it so far in the snow on Sunday!

On Sunday we went to a life drawing workshop - nice and warm and away from the elements. Monday morning was glorious though.

Grabbing the rare sight of sun this January! Lots of catkins in evidence here too and an encouraging sight.

Three days with some sunshine last week - they lift the January gloom.
