February 2002

February 1 February 2 February 3 February 4 February 5

  • The Shrove Tuesday pancake race around the Minster in Wimborne, some serious contenders!
  • Much of the month was overcast and stormy – choppy seas in Mupe Bay, the water cloudy with chalk washed from the cliffs
  • Wintery clouds scud past the church at Wimborne St. Giles, on the Shaftesbury estate
  • Some slightly better conditions towards the end of the month – snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) on a bank overlooking White Mill, Sturminster Marshall
  • The more common sight throughout this month – heavy rain just before sunset at Lyme Regis
