Winter drags on.

More snow today on the edge of a major winter storm that luckily just missed us. Another day of winter is disappointing  to humans but wildlife is really feeling the pinch. There were redwing blackbirds in the park a few days ago but there’s no trace of them now. Nothing has budged from its winter state so spring is still some time away. Because of thick cloud cover, the more powerful March sunshine is neutralized.

On days like these, I usually have the park to myself.

Fresh snow covers the ground and the temperature barely cracked 0°C today.

At the weir the water had an interesting oily look that the camera was able to capture quite nicely.

Snow flakes and oily water.
