By the river



The compensation for such a wet, cold winter like this one is that I am moved to make the most of any bright day. Yesterday I got my wellington boots from the garden shed and headed down to the river.

The sun was bright enough to bring out the colours in the shelducks and redshanks. I saw hundreds of lapwings, several curlews and a large flock of pink-footed geese. So nothing special but everything enjoyable.



About aides mémoires

This is a chronological list of things I have seen, places I have visited, and thoughts that have wandered through the space between my ears. A reading group of one; an art appreciation society limited by my preferences and prejudices; opera criticism by one who knows nothing about the subject.
