Yesterday seemed to be the start of spring, and a cursory glance this morning might have confirmed that we were finally looking forward to some improved (and more seasonally appropriate) weather. After all, the ducks were busy being naughty ducks in twos and threes…
The jackdaws were busy gathering nest material…
And the sun lit up the daffodil strewn churchyard and a pair of pretty mallards.
But to have thought that this was spring would have been a mistake.
Lunchtime. Snow. Not much, but the white stuff was falling. This is the local 13th century barn (seriously), once part of Thomas Cromwell's estate.
Tonight. No messing around this time. Large flakes of the stuff tumbling from the sky.
It hasn't really settled (and I don't expect it to), but it was still snowing just a few minutes ago. The forecast suggests a slight warming over the next few days and, on Sunday, a very welcome change in wind direction. It's been blowing from the North East for the past few weeks. Sunday brings a southern breeze and while the temperatures won't rocket they should certainly ease off a bit. I bet it rains. 😀
Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens apart from teh final one which was snapped with the EF 24-105 F4L IS USM lens.
