Snow on the water
My 8 o’clock meeting was cancelled this morning so I stopped off for 5 minutes to take a photo of the snow instead!
Red Kite Wing Tag ‘D’
Good to see our favourite South Downs Red Kite this morning on the road out of Bepton. Even better, she doesn’t look any the worse for all the recent snow and bad weather.
Sussex Raven and Buzzard
Just look at the size of this Raven chasing a Buzzard over Bepton Down this afternoon!
Bepton Bird Feeder
It’s –9°C in Bepton this morning and there are lots of chilly beaks outside! Continue reading “Feed the birds! (It’s the coldest day of the year so far)”
There’s a burgeoning bank of Snowdrops at the end of Bepton Road. Wordsworth described them as the ‘harbinger of Spring’… However, it’s not a true British wild flower, and was probably introduced during the 16th Century from mainland Europe. But who cares! They’re wonderful…
The view from Harting Down
The view from Harting Down on The South Downs at 7:00am on my Tuesday morning drive to the office. You’ve got to marvel at English weather and the English countryside sometimes! The fog settles in the low lying areas whilst the top of the Downs is sitting in sunshine. It’s quite an odd sight but it’s not unusual and doesn’t last for very long. The convenient thing about this situation is that there’s a National Trust car park at the top of the South Downs – so no need to hike up the hill first thing in the morning!
