The weather forecast said it would be dull and showery today, so of course, it was a beautiful, sunny and clear (though very windy) morning as we set out for a short walk after we'd completed our household chores. The reservoirs around here are still drying out rapidly and a look at Shipley Lake (often now referred to as 'Shipley Lagoon', I notice), shows this well. The swans on the lake didn't seem to notice the falling water levels. There is even a lone Gadwall () in the picture. Can you spot it?
