Is it spring yet?

Determined to soak up every ray of winter sun that filters through the damp clouds, we ventured today to Etherow Country Park.

It’s a wildfowl mecca, so Fig got to look surprised at some geese. I never tire of a Mandarin duck, but have given up taking pictures of them because you can always find better ones online.

It was sunny, but still oh so cold, so Fig was teddy-beared up in his favourite faux sheepskin. And two hats. He sets the trends, he doesn’t follow them…

Despite the temperature, and even though there’s still no hint of spring in the air, the afternoon sunshine really did feel good.  It may be a bit of a performance getting out of the house these days, but we never regret it.
