Looking Forward

In the South West we continue to have heavy rain most days and the rivers are running high and many fields are water logged.  The Met Office have issued a series of flood warnings for the area.

I do walk a certain local area fairly regularly in order to record the nature and bird life and have done so for 3 years now.  The weather currently appears to have had a considerable effect on this.
I am not observing the birds I would expect to see in early January.
From what I have observed the local nature Reserves have also suffered from the extreme weather.

So in this post I thought I would display images taken from my archives of what hopefully we can look forward to in the Spring and Summer time.
