Retreating thunderstorm, Cuddington, Buckinghamshire, UK in May 2021 – by Paul Ridout

“An unexpected spring afternoon thunderstorm heading towards the Chilterns, recorded from a first floor window of our house. All the usual features are here: the steady rumble of a passing storm, the dripping of rain off the plants in the garden and off the thatched roof and the growing boldness of the birdsong as the storm recedes.”
