Look One Way then the Other

Wednesday, December 9th 2015

At the moment the weather is, to say the least, changeable!  Walking through the Scrapes, looking one way saw blue sky and sunshine.

Blue sky and sunshine

Looking the other way, black clouds, making the cream reeds stand out.

Although the reserve is well and truly dressed in her winter coat, there is a little bit of colour, if you look hard!  Along the pond edges and beyond there are rows of colour, from the grasses, seed heads, Hawthorns and Willow stems.

Colours across the pond

Not brightly coloured, but the muted tones of old sedge stems and leaves showing their reflections in the slightly rippling water can be seen.
