A strange light appeared in the sky this afternoon, and it brightened things up so much that Tilly and I decided to go for a good walk.
The wind is a lot warmer today than of late. Winter has slipped away - again. But the combination of sunshine and a light wind on my face was really very uplifting. The walk was taken to another level when I spied the first snowdrops I have seen this year. We have a lot growing in the wood around us, but I haven't even seen any shoots from those yet. However, less than a mile away we saw these.
Annoyingly I picked up my old camera before I left the house, so the focus on these two photos is not good. The buzzard was sitting, with a superior air, in a tree on the other side of our boundary, and I couldn't resist taking a snap; it just about picks up the glint in his eye. Then he lifted off and languidly flew through the wood to another branch.
