Burning Calories!

Last Wednesday, feeling like we'd had plenty of this,
(well for the moment),
Karen and I thought that a good walk would be the perfect antidote!

We headed for Gatton's Nut Wood and a decent climb up to the top of the North Downs.
Negotiating plenty of puddles and mud ensured a near catastrophic loss of calories -
so much so that we simply had to buy a tasty hot chocolate at the cafe on the way!

And our efforts were rewarded with welcome reminders that Winter will not last for ever.

December 2011

A few days ago, my son, Thomas and I braved a chilly, not to mention muddy evening to try for a Barn Owl reported roosting in 'the Little Owl hole'. This is located in an Oak tree at the sheep paddocks at our 'local patch' We weren't too disappointed to see just the resident Little Owl and enjoy watching the wintery sunset; lovely!
