I think that sums up the weather for all of us this winter. What it has meant for me is that I haven't really had the chance to go and search for the 'early-risers' in the orchid families, not because I don't like the wet, rather that I don't want to go trampling around on soggy ground potentially damaging the habitats.
I have however been able to grab a few photographs of other subjects, notably my resident kingfisher and a rather fine cormorant on the millpond. I would now like to capture some action shots of both and with the kingfisher try and apply some of the techniques used by Ernst Haas just to see what happens.
The days are now noticeably longer and the mornings spectacular, just a few short weeks until the clocks change and we will soon see the spring. Something I am really looking forward to.
