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.
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.
