A cloudy start led to some light drizzle by mid morning, fortunately at about midday the rain stopped and it brightened up. The wind picked up later and changed direction bringing colder but clearer weather.

Very quiet here today apart from the continual background noise from the M1 motorway on the other side of the field to the right

After a cloudy morning with some light rain the colder weather moved in bringing sunnier skies and enhancing the colours. It might not look it but these fields were very wet and muddy, my boots quickly gaining weight and feeling like divers boots as the clumps of mud grew and grew.

The M1 motorway on a Friday afternoon. I know where I would rather be.
