Sunday morning blow

With the usual Sunday morning weather, gale force W>6 with heavy horizontal rain and low cloud it was down to Leeshaw in the hope of some shelter , but not to be.
The wind was howling from the west driving heavy rain and drizzle across the area whipping the reservoir up so it looked like the north sea with white horses speeding across and lashing up the banking.
It was only the fact that the dogs needed walking or I,d probably not even bothered getting out of the car.
Needless to say, birding was a no no with a few Canadas and Greylags braving it out on the water whilst an Oystercatcher was in the field.
Here endeth another weekend.
