Wild

After a pretty wild night with high winds and squally showers, there were lots of twigs, branches and leaves everywhere this morning.  Thankfully, the wind has now died down a bit and despite the threat of further showers, it stayed dry for us to have a walk around the lakes (what's left of them) of Straw's Bridge.  All was quiet on 'Swan Lake' this morning.  Quiet is not usually a word you would use to describe the Squabbling gulls and bickering geese which live there.  But this morning, the Canada Gees were all too busy slumbering to care about us.
Quiet as they seemed, they did all have a beady eye open, looking out for the first signs of someone arriving with a bread bag when things would certainly have become a lot less peaceful.
