Spring Is Coming at Howden Reservoir

Spring Is Coming at Howden Reservoir

I couldn’t help but notice the greening up of the Derwent Valley yesterday when we took our 16.5km stroll around Derwent and Howden reservoirs. The walk began in bright sunshine at Derwent Dam. Soon the weather turned chilly with weather changing every few minutes from sunshine to snow and hail showers. At around 2 degrees the weather was perfect for walking, so long as you were wrapped up warm.

I managed to get a few shots of the promise of spring as you can see from the gallery below. The place is full of Canada Geese at the moment, though you will have to take my word for that as we didn’t take a long lens. you can’t miss them though as they are making a hell of a racket … as are those at the bottom of our village at around 04:30 every morning. Who needs an alarm clock in goose breeding season eh?
