William Holman Hunt, The Festival of St Swithin. Swithin was a Bishop of Winchester in the 9th Century; if it rains on his day, the 15th July, it is said that it will rain for the next 40 days. Up until a couple pf days ago, it has rained here just about every day for three weeks.





William Henry Hunt (1790-1864), watercolour of a dead Wood Pigeon. They're much fatter these days, so fat around here that they can hardly take off.
