The lake

These photos were taken on 6th December and shows how low my poor old lake is! It's fed by a seasonal stream which nearly always dries up in summer, but this is the latest the stream has ever stayed dry, normally starting to flow and fill the lake during the rainy season of October and November.

We have resident moorhens here. Parents have come and gone, youngsters have been born, grown up and moved on to pastures new but they are as much a part of the lake as the water is, hence the name of my blog and house!
