Arnside and beyond

By gladders

Ear to ear

Gus had to exercise all his rounding up skills to organise this small flock of Suffolks into a line all looking the same way. Even then a few of the shy ones were hiding at the back. Not quite ready for the Royal inspection yet. The old corrugated iron field barn was a blip subject some years ago, and I noticed this time that a hedgerow tree that was in that blip, has since disappeared, like so many others in this landscape.

We were in BW for a panel meeting. After a lot of working on our line of defence, we haven't yet seen the light. But we will get there.

It was a bit warmer than when we were here at the beginning of February. There were male yellowhammers all along the hedgerows little-bit-of-bread-and-no-cheesing, while the incessant song of skylarks floated down from above, there was a barn owl in Vicarage Lane, and two buzzards mewing above Braegate. Later we saw 6 red kites as we drove back from Bainton after a long overdue lunch with S & B.  Then an evening family catch-up.

Thanks very much for all the kind comments, stars and hearts for the Gus in the mist blip.

Back blipped on Monday 4th March 2019.
