Pinkfeet in the Mist

The sun never really appeared yesterday. When I awoke the air was cold and full of mist. A fog had enveloped the hill during the night and although the morning was late it was still not as light as it should have been. I was doing a few jobs in the garden; jobs I should have done in the autumn but it has been so wet since November.

I’m used to the sound of Pinkfeet over Falcon Cottage; although it still makes me stop what I’m doing and look up. It took a while to pick them out in the greyness but as the sound got louder the typical V formation appeared suddenly overhead.

What normally happens is the sound gets louder and then disappears into the distance as they move on; not so today. As I continued with my chores the sound waxed and waned but never went away. The Geese were circling. They were lost in the fog. The mist had disorientated them and they didn’t know where they were. This continued for nearly half an hour until I heard another flock coming in from the west. The first flock quickly joined these and all went away to the east. No doubt to find good grazing on the broads.
