Gusting winds from the NNE

BBC Weather Forecast for Old Sarum area

After a noisy night (did any of your windows vibrate and whistle like mine?), there is still a strong wind blowing. The wind speeds on the extract above from the BBC Weather Forecast app, are in mph.

It was easy to walk in the same direction as the wind this morning, but not so comfortable when walking against it!

A tree is blocking the footpath onto Old Sarum from the Old Castle Inn direction.

The sunken section of path on the approach to the Mill Lane pedestrian bridge where water has not drained away for many weeks, has been reported to the Rights-of-Way team at Wiltshire Council through the MyWiltshire app.

However, the flooded field on the south side of Mill Lane was much appreciated by a Little Egret this morning.
