November - and its remarkably warm. Russ and I went for a lovely walk yesterday along the banks of the River Asker which have been made up for walkers and cyclists. We met so many people we knew - because it was such a lovely warm day. This walk takes us past a tiny hump back bridge - called Happy Island. And it is - there were loads of children playing. A bit cloudier today - but still warm enough for me to get out in the garden and plant some mixed leaf lettuce in the polytunnel. I am attaching a photo taken by a friend who stayed a month or so ago - its a yellow wagtail. Brilliant photography.
