We went for one of our favourite short walks yesterday, but didn't get far. We may be in the middle of a drought, but it's hard to understand, isn't it! This is usually the site of much swimming in the summer. Ahead of the bench is a flowing river. It was odd seeing the current flowing around, but the flooded bits staying still.
We popped out there again just before the sun went down today... the water had gone down about 4 foot already. It was sad, as there had been a swan's nest, and it had obviously been torn apart. We found one swan's egg, and also what looked like a rather large crayfish. ... lots of wildlife devastation. I feel very sorry for those with homes caught in recent flooding.
