Topping up day for the reservoirs.

A foggy start which soon cleared giving way to heavy, sometimes torrential, rain continuing until 1500 hrs when the skies cleared allowing a short burst of blue and even a hint of sunshine until the night clouds came rolling in at 1745 hrs.
A dog walk over the Mountain this evening saw a large bank of fog creeping through the valley from the east looking like we make again wake up to fog in the morning.
A few Redwings were around at lunch time over Foxhill heading for the station whilst Blackbirds were noticeable by their higher than usual numbers.
If the wind gets up tonight as promised it should clear any lingering fog and then they tell us a heatwave of 70 deg will hit us on Saturday and last into mid November. Believe that if you want but I don,t.
Well done to Bradshaw John for his dedication today checking the local waters in awesome conditions.
