For various reasons, dear reader, I had to pop over to the north east side of Manor farm. I took this opportunity to introduce you to the north side of Hawthorn lake.
24 hours after the thaw set in most all the snow has gone. Only the deeper stuff, primarily caused by drifting of the fine dry snow, and those bits in deep shade survived to this morning. Colnbrook lake looked clear of ice. Manor lake north was still fairly solid with ice.
With temperatures up to 6 degree centigrade, I was beginning to get heat stroke as I wandered around the reserve for an hour. :-)
