My sincere thanks to Caroline for introducing me to a glorious walk today, new to me, and for the great company. The light was wonderful, the air pure, the breeze fresh and the scenery, from distant vistas to hedgerows a few steps away, were a delight. The larks were singing beautifully on the top of the hill, and we witnessed a bird of prey, no more than 15ft away from us, capturing a rabbit or something equally substantial. The spring lambs were tiny, leggy, ridiculously endearing. On the entire walk we only saw two other people, a couple who had come up for the day from Shrewsbury. Here are a few photographs to celebrate a super day, and what a sublimely great feeling it is to feel that winter may be, at long last, in slow albeit intermittent retreat.
