Links Pond Gull!
Sunny start to the day so decided a walk down to the Links Pond was in order. Haven't been down here for quite a while and I was surprised how empty pf water it was given the amount of rain we've had recently. I can only put that down to the abundance of new rushes growing there - they must be sucking all the water up so as to thrive. No birds except this lone Gull standing on a branch stuck in the muddy pond bed. No sooner had I got my camera out than it suddenly bucketted down - torrential rain! Managed a couple shots before the rain came on, but a few spots did land on the camera. Luckily not too wet and I had a cloth handy to dry it with. Called in at Lidls on my way home to buy Blueberries and Milk - came out plus a packet of my favourite biscuits - Italiamo Fior di Neve. If you like hazelnut and chocolate you'd enjoy these. It's been raining on and off all afternoon! 1st day of Summer tomorrow - I wonder if it will arrive:)
