Moist, moisten, moistened

Ynysyfro Reservoirs upper basin in the rain today.

Two sodden weekends into the new year, two soggy visits to the mighty Ynysyfro completed.  Not an awful lot doing but, let's face it, one goes to Ynysyfro for the irony not the birds,... I guess two redhead Goosander on the lower basin are the pinnacle of ornithological achievement thus far.  Other delights include the long-staying leucistic Coot, Aythya numbers creeping up toward respectability and the 'Scaup-faced' female Pochard returning for another winter.  Joy!  Untrammelled, if moist, joy.
