After seeing the squirrel looking up confused when I moved the feeders and saw that the small birds weren't visiting I've put them all back in the old apple tree ... the squirrel is delighted!
After the deluge of rain we had yesterday morning (7th December) the dark, heavy clouds start to move away ...
and the sun is valiantly trying to break through
First time this winter that a pheasant has come to visit ... could it be because George dropped some of the bird seed under the tree?
The sky has cleared and the sun is shining on to clouds ...
as we take a stroll in the cold wind along the weir ... two sluices open today ...
the river is rising a little
Anyone for a white water rafting?
I love winters' light

As I write this (Saturday) after more heavy rain overnight the River Thames condition has risen to 'Stream Increasing' between Marsh Lock (Henley) and Boveney Lock (Windsor) and orange warning boards are being displayed at those locks/reaches that are affected.
