Dull, Dull, Dull!

It has been a few days since I last posted on here, due mainly to the continued, dull, wet and miserable weather which has kept us from our usual walks. This morning, despite the forecast which was for more dull weather, we nevertheless set out for a short walk to Straw's Bridge. Even this proved to be rather more wet than we expected and we returned damp, but glad to have got out, however briefly.
So, with a lack of photos, I thought I'd take a look back at my posts at this time in previous years, starting with 2014. Last year, we had just had a bright and sunny Guy Fawkes day...
Two years ago, on this day, we had been on a short walk to Straw's Bridge as the weather was as dull as it was today. The ducks were not too bothered, as they weren't this morning...
In 2012, my interest was caught by the rising moon in a chilly night sky, accompanied as was by a bright Jupiter, shining beside it.
Back in 2011, we were experiencing a chilly spell and following our walk, we had a medicinal brandy - to keep out the cold .!!  The Black-headed Gulls at Straw's Bridge were not too bothered by the chill.
Back to the present, it doesn't look likely that the weather will improve any time soon, but at least it remains unseasonably mild - so the gas bill will look a little better than usual!
