Spring is definitely on its way. Woken up by a Canada Goose flying over (very noisily), and saw my first Goldeneyes of the season on the river this morning.
To celebrate we hit the ski-sales and now have our very own X-country skis to play with - sadly not any suitable snow, but we'll be poised when winter comes round again.
The river and waterfall are almost back to full pelt, but the stray ice on the left side has formed an icy cavern. Simultaneously beautiful and oh so slightly menacing .
