Sunday 16th February

 Something very different appeared today, the sun. Glorious sunshine bathed all of Biddisham lane for the whole day. The sky was the deepest cobalt blue fading to a hazy pastel shade. The sun was low and bright, the clouds were almost painted perfectly in the sky in fluffy wool white. It was a beautiful, beautiful day that we were all very grateful of.

It would have been silly to sit inside so we went on an extended walk of Biddisham lane, including the back drove which we think was the original road into Biddisham running from the church to Poplar farm.
The drove wasn't too swamped at right at the end we watched a hang-glider attempting a flight on Crooks Peak. There was quite an audience up there on the hill.

All the birds appeared to make the most of the sun, a great flock of starlings, egrets, ducks, swans, buzzards, etc. Everything came back to life just for one very special day.
