Worst weekend on record

Late afternoon and gearing up to face the gale force W>6 gusting 7 with heavy horizontal rain and low cloud base when the phone rang, daughter Rachel with water leaking from her shower through the kitchen ceiling.
What a bit of luck, an escape from the elements.
With plumbing tackle in the car and my Mr Bodgett cap on I headed off but called at Bank Top country park on the way for a quick look around so the day was,nt a complete flop.
Much as I,m not a park watcher it was nice to see 2 Mute Swans along with several Coots and Moorhens amazingly doing well in such a grim area, I expected the Swans being shot by now.
So that was my birding done for the weekend, on to mend the leak then back home to my own decorating. At least its work tomorrow so the weather should improve.
