  3. Well in Finland that is what spring looks like, but no, it is still horribly cold in England. I heard the long term forecast was for cold all the way through April.

  4. This year will go down in legend I think. The good thing is that at least the days are growing longer now! And, hey, you had a bit of blue sky! I like the leaves and the tree bark - and the birds, of course!

  5. Spring? What's that Roy? :-( Lovely images of the rather bleak views we are all seeing at the moment I suspect.

    Lovely photos from your garden on the last post too, good to see the Siskins are still with you.

  6. Ahhh! Doesn't the British country side look great in the Spring?

    Great set of images Roy.

    I'm just polishing the runners on the sledge in readiness for a midsummer day's outing, the snow should be perfect by then!!...[;o)

  7. BBBrrrrrr! I know that was a c-c-cold w-w-walk Roy! Hope you had some nice warm soup afterwards. Some lovely landscape shots and I thought for a nano second that the back of that flying swan was the front!!! What rarity had you taken! Silly me! (-:

    1. Thanks Jen. The biting wind made it much worse.
      I posted the high flying swan as I liked the cloud and blue sky and the position of the bird.
      I suppose it could have been some large seabird flying in the other direction.{:))

  9. Hard to believe it's nearly April isn't it ;-) Lovely wintry shots Roy, you certainly seem to have had more snow down there compared to here. I also really like the Swan shot, especially the deep blue colour of that wintry sky :-)

    1. Thanks David. I should like to think that we will get a some nice Spring and a good Summer, but I doubt it.

  10. What a beautiful area to explore and photograph and it looks like you have the same issue as us, never ending winter. Loved all your bird photos from the previous post too.

    1. Thanks John, it is part of my local patch.
      However the never ending winter is taking the shine off of it at the moment.
