Monday 15, and the forecast had predicted a dry day, but as I set off for Leighton Moss it was raining and blowing a gale, with 50mph signs flashing on the M6. However by the time I had crossed the boarder into Lancashire, the sun was shinning, although the wind was still blowing quite strong.
The following pics were taken from the Eric Morecombe hide.
