Went for a stroll up towards Weets this afternoon - very blustery to say the least but not a cloud in the sky. Colours glorious. Panorama magnificent. Even caught a rare glimpse of the lesser spotted Doc warbler...

 

View over Barlick and the Beating The Bounds marker (bottom right) at top of Folly Lane.



Spot the Doc - yes, he is in this picture ... somewhere.



Barlick from Occupation Road.



Ne'er cast a clout till t'May is out - so get ready to disrobe because the first petals are starting to appear (at bottom of May tree if you look carefully)

Rerun again this morning. Ideal walking weather. G;ass steady and wind in the SE or East but not bitter as it can be at this time of the year. We need rain, Butts Beck only a trickle.

 Thanks Nolic.

Answer to yesterday's quiz:



Here he is, mowing the lawn on the right of the pic. 

Can't seem to get the quality I used to when uploading photos. They used to be really clear and sharp. If I make them bigger (as here) they look rubbish. Ne'er mind.

And speaking of "Ne'er" - I discovered that if the photo title has an apostrophe in it, it will upload but not be available for pasting into position. I had to call a previous shot "Never cast a clout" before it would insert.

Another re-run, cold and clear, it will be dry and sunny. April rainfall very low, average for the country is less than half of normal but of course some places much worse. Arable crops are suffering and looking at the fires in Ireland I wonder about the moors. They must be very dry.

Reports of moor fires in Lancashire. Clear sky and less wind today. I noticed yesterday that quite a lot of cloud bubbled up as the day wore on. Met Office says that in many parts, last April was the warmest and driest for over a century, that's certainly the impression here in Barlick. We need rain and soon.....

The moors above Halifax were ablaze on monday, and there have been other fires in North yorks. It was really cold here yesterday, despite being dry and bright, today is sunny and looks set to warm up a bit. I'm off out to catch some rays!

We have another dry morning but there is a chance of rain in the next few days. The gardens will be glad and hopefully there will be enough to reduce the fire risk.

Some sharp showers and rumbles of thunder over here in Nelson this evening.
Cool

Cathy, I consulted the runes and it is not a propitious time, sometime over the weekend I think. I have all the apparatus ready!

The wind has shifted to the south and it's much warmer. Much more cloud yesterday and we had a light shower in the evening and possibly another during the night. No weight and not enough to revive the gardens but nonetheless a welcome sign of a change.The glass is tending to fall but what's puzzling me is mention yesterday of the Spanish Plume' which is supposed to give a very warm weekend. Never heard of it before....

More thunder showers over here in Pendle this evening and night and, very warm and muggy. Still though, not enough water for the garden, countryside and moorlands. Tinder dry as they say.
