We are spending a couple of nights in Hunstanton and our first evening gave us a beautiful sunset.

Despite the continuing grey skies , we decided on a walk at Wimpole yesterday and I tried out a new family camera - an Olympus Tough compact which can withstand the most-adverse weather conditions and underwater work as well as dropped and otherwise abused. It has quite a few complicated close up features including a microscope setting that allows extreme closeups. I took a few leaf and lichen images (images 1, 4, 6 and 9) and generally impressed considering the greyness of the day and the small sensor size.

Since our last visit in November (https://pin-sharp.blogspot.com/2019/11/welney-floods.html), the floods did recede for a short while but all the recent rain has filled the Ouse Washes levels even higher so there is now no shallow water for dabbling ducks and waders. It was mainly Pochard plus Tufted ducks on the main area plus Grey-lag Geese flying in and out periodically.

After all the rain, it needed a pitch inspection to give the go ahead and certainly there will be a lot of washing needed as the mud took over. A hard-fought game and Cambridge delighted with the win.

Walked from Barton through Grantchester into Cambridge yesterday on a cold and very dull-light morning giving a rather sombre collection of images - probably suiting the mood in our household at the moment where everyone other than Matt and I (so far) have gone down with a particularly nasty D and V bug. The sun came out just as I reached Cambridge
