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.
