Attenborough today

10 Nov

Mostly the weather has been wet, exceedingly so, but today was sparkling bright. With Jasper I took these in Attenborough this afternoon.

The band of duckweed on the far edge of this sheet of water marks the normal course of the brook. The rest – usually grass, nettles, flowers and trees – is flood water.

Half a mile on and I’m at the bank of the Trent, swollen and moving at a fair lick, right to left.

Not that this cormorant is complaining.

    • Thanks B. I should have added that in normal times that brook runs a metre and a half below the edges of its banks.
