I'm not happy, firstly, I noticed this scene some days ago and I had hoped on my return today it would excite as much as it did then - unfortunately the snow had fallen from the members of the big tree. I think this one works though.
Melting snow - Tree
Secondly, Anne and I discovered recently where we think some Red Kite are roosting and having travelled to the area today taking a risk on a single track road with much of it covered in ice. Having found a farm entrance to safely park in and keeping a good distance from the birds, imagine our discomfort to see and hear a dog and owner walking along the very ridge where the birds were flying and hearing said person suddenly shouting who's that down there. Shouting, barking did not go down well with us or either the kites. Just to add to my miseries my back which I put out the other day was not happy either!
Oh well, here are a few distant ones, a couple I think might not be adults.
