Tilly and I had a good walk this morning. We got a lift to the other side of the village and walked home. The skylarks endless trilling and twittering high above was constant from start to finish! A summery sound to accompany us as we walked along in the sunshine.
Just outside the village there is a pre-historic standing stone in the middle of a field at Pencraig Brae. This photo isn't of the best quality. I was using my old camera which has a mental blockage about zooming in on a subject. Nevertheless I rather liked the presence of the very old and the present day in one photo. I hope you can see the hazy outline of modern technology in the background, the huge sails of a few wind turbines, and the ancient standing stone in the foreground.
As well as the skylarks we saw fieldfares, yellowhammers, blackcaps and a couple of hares! A good start to the weekend!
