Starling Rain on Boxing Day
Boxing day and what more could a woman want than a walk along the promenade at Aberystwyth as the waves crash into the sea wall. Well I thought that the bit more could be to stand on the pier with an umbrella as the starlings mill around. That I thought, would be a seasonal treat no woman could refuse. And I was right because both Sarah and Bethan (my daughter) leapt at the chance to do this. I even supplied the umbrella and money for a hot chocolate. The light was not so good but the pose was worth the effort me thinks. Same photograph appears on my Facebook page. Sarah should be home soon - coat was covered in starling droplets so didn't want to spoil the car....

(Of course not! We all drove home for a glass of mulled wine. As you do.)
