Hazel Catkins

Back in the Cotswolds after several weeks away , the days are noticeably longer and signs of spring are all around like these hazel catkins well developed in the hedgerow but not quite ready to release their pollen.

Rain and Floods in the Severn Vale.

We have had a large amount of rain in the last few weeks and the ground is unable to absorb any more. The watercourses cannot cope with getting it all away so many of the fields are now covered with standing water as here at Saul beside the Stroudwater canal.

Sun over the river

This winter's weather continues to swing from heavy rain and gales to bright sunny days. On a sunny day this week we were able to view large flocks of lapwing and golden plover over the Severn with Awre church in the background.
