The Canada Geese are still flying over, making their way back over the Atlantic from Canada.
You hear them go, and know winter is almost here. You hear them come back and you know that summer is almost here. It is a truly evocative sound.
I saw one stood on the roof of the hospital last night as the sun was setting.
I hope it will be a good summer, but I fear it will not be. We have had a hot, dry spell and the rivers are starting to run very low. So low that the River Severn river cruises in the town of Shrewsbury have been cancelled as the river is too shallow.
