The tide was high and it was cold again, with a smell of woodsmoke in the air. Cloudy with fitful winter sunshine. The waters of the Creek were gently ruffled by the breeze and a grey wagtail skimmed the surface really close to where I was sitting. The light seemed to be tinged with red, maybe as a result of the plants greening up; during the snow there was a haze of golden violet. You can almost feel the plants struggling to wake up after the winter and the pigeons are getting thoroughly over-excited. After the quiet of the Sunday walk I was suddenly aware of how much industrial noise there is during the week.
