  • Dramatic skies form a suitable backdrop to the recently installed memorial to the wartime radar research carried out at Worth Matravers
  • Early morning mist lingers over a frosty field alongside the River Stour
  • Towards the end of the month gales swept in – two lone surfers at Bournemouth Pier brace themselves against the fierce winds whilst contemplating whether it would be wise to continue
  • Meanwhile a short way inland a few hardy shoppers brave the rain
  • But the sun did shine during some of the month – back on the coast at St Aldhelm's chapel
