Mild and drizzly this morning. Wind is starting to increase now. The fields are well and truly waterlogged. Our local reservoir is still low, they've applied for a drought order so that they can pump water from the rivers to fill it. At the moment it makes perfect sense as the rivers are bursting the banks, but with the speed of bureaucracy it will be summer before it takes place, then the rivers will be in danger of running dry!
