bottisham-lock-161201-1Bottisham Lock 1st December 2016.  Cold, frost fringed leaves on the ground and fields faded to grey.  Bottisham Lode iced over; mute swans uproot reeds searching for food in their small patch of water.  Black headed gulls ‘kwarr’ angrily; grey herons sail by silently on outstretched wings.  Dogs bark in the distance.
