Dull Days and Dogs
Once again, the weather seems to be conspiring against us. We have had so many dull, dreary and drizzly days lately that it it has been difficult to get much of a walk. This morning however, we set out for a short walk around Straw's Bridge (always best when you are likely to get rained on, as there are bridges under which you can shelter). The 'main' lake of the area is known locally as Swan Lake, but at times this can seem like a bit of a misnomer. This morning, swans were rather few in number, but drake Mallards seemed to be everywhere. Here, several were paying court to just one female bird, who seemed to be taking all the attention in her stride.
