If you’ve ever spent anytime with Canada Geese (or any geese for that matter) the one thing they are very good at is converting grass into goose and and goose shit. Combine the later with a heavy down poor and you have the recipe for a really slippery surface which your’s truly nearly came a cropper on in a forlorn chase after a Little Grebe as the fast moving current swept it along the river bank.
Still it was a relief to actually be able to get out after the past few days of almost constant rain and dampness. Grey never looked so grey.
So tomorrow is Christmas and it will certainly be a strange one. Not the strangest one, mind you, I’ve had but then again I’ve worked a many Christmas Day so, unlike many people, for me Christmas Day is when it is rather than on any specific day.
So should you come to read this before Christmas I hope you have as good a celebration as you can under the circumstances and let us all hope that the New year brings the changes that we all hope for.
