Went for an early stagger but the wind near took my breath away. Here's one I made earlier. There's a small colony of swans on our lake, fed, despite the discrete signs asking you not to, by locals and visitors alike. The problem being that few folk come in winter and the swans - and the ducks, let's not forget them - are reliant on the handouts. And then during the day there's the rotten seagulls who flock in, make a racket and, if you're really lucky, crap all over you. And no, I don't feed the birds, since when was bread part their natural diet? This chap followed us all along the lake, quite sinister in a way, so I thought to put him here that people could keep an eye out for him and avoid getting mugged.

A wonderfully calming photograph.

Remember: "Today is about rest and recuperation, and a time to reflect and attempt to eradicate the guilt following our recent spate of over indulgence?"

But only feel guilty if you have over indulged. Some of us exercise alarmingly good self control dontchaknow.
