Monday 31st October 2016
Yes, our usual Monday morning walk meant that we were back on Upton Heath. This time we walked to the pond and then met Dawn with Henry and Addy and walked up the hill to the viewpoint. So although we have been here 3 days running each walk has been different.
At first it was quite dull and a little misty.
But the sun soon broke through. By the time we were approaching the pond this little Russula, nestled in a tussock of grass, was in bright sunshine.
At the pond Jez decided to wade in while Max waited to play.
Here I’ve got his attention by holding his cone in the hand I’m using to press the shutter.
We left the pond and started to walk up the hill, where I was took this photo of Max sitting in the sun.
As I said, we met Dawn with Henry and Addy. We also came across the cows. Jez had to investigate, but is a lot more wary of them now she is older.
Henry had to investigate too.
And after that we continued on up to the Viewpoint and I phoned Chris to come and pick us up at Beacon Road.
