Its ruddy cold at night here. Clear star heavy skies at night with the temperature dropping rapidly after sunset and in the morning a layer of ice on the water, which confuses the local ducks.
Ducks walking on ice water first thing in the morning
After sunrise the sun shines brightly and the temperature climbs rapidly to a dizzy 10 degrees, time to sit out, albeit in a jumper, and enjoy a bit of vitamin D.
The weather forecast however, is not kind in that the cold days are due to return and we could well have snow again by the weekend, but we have a view of spring and it will return soon as there are only 4 weeks to go before Easter and route planning is going on in earnest .
