We've just returned from a short walk (Thursday 6th Feb) and noticed that, at long last, yellow, (stream decreasing) signs have appeared on Hambleden Lock for the reach above (upstream) to Marsh Lock at Henley. The reach below Hambleden to Hurley Lock is still on red boards (strong stream) ... so yes, things, river wise are getting back to normal!
But back to Saturday 25th January, when normality started to return ... and I walked the same walk as we've just done ...
The mill stream had fallen below the pontoon which are now no longer rising ...
I'd not seen the weir 'steps' for quite some time either!
but there was still a strong, strong stream though the weir sluices
I love this view of Hambleden Mill as I cross the weir
First spring bulbs I'd seen too!
We saw more of the Kingfisher too while the water was high
So ... what was going on 12 months ago?
there was much excitement ...
We set off on our six-week holiday to Singapore and Australia!
We had such a wonderful time (click just here to look back at the blogs), but I'm very aware that I didn't get to finish posting the blogs ... so from tomorrow I will do my best to revisit my numerous photos and get on with it!
