The beck was full and running rapidly (the day had started with heavy sleet and rain but dried up mid-morning).
Standing water in several places on the main path and even impassable without wellies just north of the main pond.
At least it proved my new walking boots were waterproof.
Very wet between the beck and the main path but at least the latter was clear at the time.
These photos were all taken walking down the path from the car park and past the footbridge - but only for about 100m before it was too wet (I was only wearing mud boots, not waders) and I turned back.
In the last photo (not as clear as I had hoped) you can just about see on the left the water gushing out of the field drains.
No sign of the frogspawn photographed yesterday. Hopefully just sunk away from the rain and would be back later.
It was definitely too wet for a litter pick, I didn't dare venture on the meadow for fear of over-topping my boots.
The beck was still a lot more full than usual, the smaller ponds had a fair amount of water in them, as well as the main one, and there were significant puddles on the path, though it was passable again.
The sentinel daffodils were still doing a fine job.
Nice in the sun though, and the frogspawn had resurfaced after the weekend rain.
Most of them would not sit still long enough for a portrait but there was an obliging egret between the footbridge and roundabout at Mandale.
Judging by the activity of the pair in the main pond there was to be more frogspawn soon.
The frogspawn in the pool near the roundabout end had gone but there were quite a few tadpoles there (and plenty of water for them).
I saw a curlew for the first time at one point but it was flying far too fast to photograph.
Most of the birds were good at hiding/flying off before I could focus but there are always flowers to snap.
