Yesterday’s plan to visit the windmill at Brill was thwarted by thick fog. Though I did ride for a couple hours I went without a camera.
Still foggy this morning (it would never clear) I had to deliver advent calendars to our two eldest granddaughters, who live in Abingdon. Not a very pleasant prospect as the temperature was just above freezing point. Not sure if it was worth while to do so, perhaps you’ll be the judge of that.
This area at the end of Peep O’Day Lane floods every winter, the water fowl swimming away are Wigeon.
These Mute Swans were feeding on the surface weed, this water is pretty stagnant.
This expanse of water is about a mile away from home and is known in county birdwatching circles as Drayton 1066 or alternatively Drayton Floods. During the winter months it is home to many species of birds, including on occasions rare migrants.
Though only an 11 mile round trip I did mange to add to my list for Oxon Aquatics Quest.
