This morning, sunny, still cold, even windy. And yet, I felt I needed to use my bike for the first time since around November.
So off I went on the standard seven mile ride around the Welland Valley. The floods have gone completely now, and the river is at its lowest for several weeks.
Nothing of note, no red kites, no kingfishers, just me in my bright yellow wind and rain proof top.
On the way back I stopped to take a couple of snaps of this 'welly wall' - the work of the local 'beaver scout' group.
