The weather was the wildest thing about today, with it blowing a gale and pouring with rain.
On our walk to school we tried to count slugs and snails, but even they were hiding from the rain. We only saw a couple, which is much less than we'd usually find, even on a dry day.
|Very few snails out braving the weather this morning|
|They were delicious, but I still don't want the snails to eat them!|
The pond was filling up nicely and the tadpoles were looked very happy to be out in the rain.
I was soaked through by this point and had had enough of the wild weather for one day, so I headed indoors for a cup of tea, to watch the bedraggled birds on the feeders.
