Inch by Inch

With all the rain from yesterday, I was curious as to how our lake had fared.
Obviously the town would be in dire straits if it was full now!
I took the above pictures a fortnight ago. The water was about 4 inches deep and both ducks and our resident 4 geese could only stand up in it, though the seagulls with their shorter legs could actually swim.
I took these today with my phone, so the level has risen by maybe a couple of inches.

There were some rather happy geese swimming contentedly on the water though
so they are coming back to breed, but at the moment, there is insufficient water for any resulting young to access the island or surrounding banks without being able to fly.

I saw these flying overhead a couple of days ago and it was very much an aim and shoot with my phone as I couldn’t see the screen, but I got in the entire flock.

It’s been beautifully sunny and warm this morning, but the temperature has dropped, the sky’s turned grey, and the wind has brought the rain back.
Maybe Spring has taken a rain check.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
