An alternative view from Castle Bolton

Castle Bolton

If you look at the right hand window at the top of the left hand tower you will see the window that I took the other photo from. Got that?

Been away

This is the view from the door of our cottage. We've been away in the Yorkshire Dales, just near a place called Keld. New birds for the year were: Bullfinch, Snipe, Skylark, Little Egret, Swallow, Sand Martin, Ring Ouzel, Dipper & Red Grouse, taking the years total to 89. Pictures of the Dipper will follow.

Bazza hits 80

A Stock Dove, not very exciting I know, but number 80 came along in my mothers back garden. Tomorrow I go to a place where I hope to add to this years list, more in a few days.
