Radley in Pictures – a selection of images from 2013

January 2013

A starling foraging in the snow during the recent wintry weather.

Severe winter weather is a stressful time for birds. Don’t forget to put out suitable food for them when the weather gets tough.

Construction of the new car park extension at Radley Railway Station has finally got underway. Hopefully this means that the problems caused by commuters parking, sometimes inconsiderately, sometimes illegally, on the roadsides and pavements in the village, will soon come to an end.

Harvest Home.

Once summer finally came, farmers have not suffered any more bad weather and it looks as if they got a reasonable harvest this year. This combine harvester was certainly reaping it in.

“Red sky at night, shepherds’ delight” perhaps, but this spectacular sunset on 8th December 2013 heralded only weeks of unrelenting wind and rain.
