The pond in the next village along has recently had quite a bit of work done to encourage more wildlife. On Saturday they had a little re-opening celebration

Grey day at Farmoor reservoir

Postby Appletonwildlifediary » Thu Sep 21, 2017 8:20 pm

Even though the sky was overcast we headed down to Farmoor reservoir to see what was about.

The sky was overcast with 'smirr' – thanks to Robert Macfarlane and his ‘word of the day’ on Twitter for this word.

Smirr is fine, drifting rain, so light as to seem mist- or smoke-like, but which coats evenly & drenches quickly, and that is exactly what the weather was doing as we head down to Farmoor.
