Meadow Floods

A couple of weeks ago I was gazing out across these meadows (below) and discussing with a fellow Birder the fact that cows had been grazing the meadows and this would allow for Snipe to hopefully appear and feed in the marshy ground.

I did not expect to see it quite like this though. We are expecting more rain and the water levels in these meadows have risen quite a lot in 24 hours.

  2. Looks as though many meadows are going to be suitable for water fowl with all the bands of heavy rain crossing the country.

  3. Your lovely photos show scenes which it seems are repeated across the country at the moment. We have local flooding here too, thankfully we live at the top of a hill. I hope all is safe with you and yours today.

    1. Thanks Jan, we are fortunate to be in an area that is unlikely to flood.
