Sheep and lambs' tails

Another beautiful morning greeted us today. First, we had all the excitement(!) of a  trip to the  tip  (which had been booked earlier in the week) but  we followed this with a walk from  South Winchester beside the River Itchen, and up over St Catherine's Hill (site of an old Iron Age fort) now a chalk downland nature reserve. See St Catherine's Hill We met some  very curious and friendly sheep, and some cattle. The extras show the view from near the  top of the reserve looking towards the village of Chilcomb, and hazel catkins (lambs' tails).  Birds seen included Buzzard, Red Kite, Kestrel,  Stonechat Redwing. The only downside was that it was very muddy and slippery  in places, but otherwise  a grand day out.
