Back Out

It seems to have been quite a long time coming, but Malcolm and I were once again, able to get out and about for a walk this morning. Following so many miserable days, it was nice to see the sun shining and the skies blue as we walked along Slack Lane.
The sun was low in the sky, giving a reddish hue to the scene, making the dead leaves of late autumn, appear ruddy hued.
Further along towards Mapperley Village, the view across these cattle fields, was worth stopping to look at because of the long shadows being cast by the poplars behind us.
Nearer to Mapperley Reservoir, the hedgerows too were being lit by the low sunshine. One oak tree at least was still displaying some green among its leaves.
On the reservoir itself, a group of six Shovelers (Anas clypeata), have arrived to spend the winter and were busy feeding in the surface waters, oblivious to the fine weather. A fine day for a walk at last!
