We had a brief, but much appreciated break from rain on Sunday! The sun came out and it was dry for several hours; it was a great opportunity to go for a walk without getting drenched or blown away. The rhines (dredging channels for the marshland near us) are full to the brim. Luckily, they work really well draining off all the extra water, I'm very glad to say!
Roe deer doe, slipping out of the undergrowth to take a drink. There are some deer here living on the marshland and in the woods on the hill, but they are really secretive.
Well, we have a windmill. Six, to be more precise. There's a wind farm at Avonmouth, and this path leads us almost underneath one of these giants. We're very fond of 'our' windmills, (we can see 4 from our windows) whirling around, providing green energy . They aren't noisy and wildlife doesn't mind them at all.
I love the way he's juxtaposed against the cold, sharp winter grassland, and I really want to use this image for something creative. I'm just not quite sure what...yet!
Now we're back to grey skies, wind and rain, so I'm very grateful for our little taste of spring.
