summer is over


so, of course, the weather improves, and the sun returns just in time for winter.

on Brentor





the little church at Brentor that is such a prominent landmark from Kit Hill. The bottom photo is looking towards Dartmoor, quite a view for one's last resting place.

birds of a feather



Waiting to munch,one colourful goldfinch and one not so drab house sparrow, as it happens and probably for the best, they prefer separate feeders although most birds appear to follow some sort of bird table etiquette at least between species.

on Kilmar tor


mare and foal ambling across the seemingly barren landscape of Kilmar tor. In fact these moors support a large number of sheep, cattle and ponies.

never can tell


These mushrooms have appeared in our paddock. As far as I know this is the first time they have appeared. It is very hard to identify mushrooms without some expertise but I think these might be sheathed woodtufts (who knows?). No wonder we don't eat wild mushrooms. There seem to be more mushrooms around this year than for some time so it looks like it may be a good year for fungi.
