Here comes the flood

The River Mole does not often burst it banks, but the relentless rain that we have had throughout December has finally taken its toll. These images were taken this morning between Mickleham and Westhumble. At least 20 Little Egrets were found, all together in a field at the half-way point.

And in four days I'll be coming home to all that. Great!

Pretty dramatic & a scene repeated all over the country. At least the next week looks a bit drier.

Well we haven't any rivers on Sheppey but the marshes are starting to look like flood plains and The Swale NNR is it's wettest for 4-5 years, it now looks like a proper wetland nature reserve. The 74 White-fronted Geese, 5 Pink-footed Geese, 1 Tundra Bean Goose and a few hundred Greylag Geese are enjoying it.

Ric - don’t worry, the Met Office are promising us a dry spell.
Conehead - it is dramatic, but I do feel for the poor souls who are currently worrying about their houses.
Derek - I envy your geese. Just Canada’s and Greylags here with the odd Egyptian thrown in.
