As we needed to walk Jet we decided to do so from Wold Newton on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. Before setting out on our walk we called in at the feeding station to top up the feeders. I noticed at church this morning that the snowdrops were just opening in the churchyard. At Scallows they were slightly behind and just showing the merest white. The altitude is just a tad higher here and some distance from the coast means that temperatures are consistently 2 degrees or so lower.
Our two mile out and back walk with the dog took us up onto the top of the wold and along to 'Badger City' where there was plenty of evidence of activity. Despite inclement weather with lowering skies and the occasional rain blowing on the chilly wind, views were expansive. Tea and cake at the village tea shop was a welcome conclusion to the expedition.
