Today we drove to Hamoon and then walked along the trailway to Sturminster Newton...about a four mile round trip. Again everyone commented on the cold weather, people are so friendly and we passed the time of day with a delightful lady out with her little dog. Popped into the greatest fabric shop in the world in Sturminster, Hansons and sadly parted with some cash for 4 yards of fabric.
This pond was also covered in ice. Bird wise I saw a Moorhen, female Kestrel, Blackcap, Coal Tit, Rooks and a Lapwing. The Blackcap and the Coal Tit were in my garden. A lovely walk apart from feeling like my nose had dropped off in the cold. Still they say it will be warmer and wetter now, so what will we talk about then!
