Stormy Swanton

I was the only person there, and this time the gate to the field was open, allowing me to park off the road, though I didn’t drive very far in as it was pretty wet and muddy! The weather had become very ominous with a large storm cloud quite close and so I only stayed for about ten minutes. However to my delight I was able to watch two goshawks flying over the woodland – still fairly distant as in February, but a little closer than then and a little easier to identify.

Tomorrow I’m heading up to Leeds where we’re coaching on an annual string quartet course. I’m going to try to leave reasonably early in the morning in order to have time for a stop somewhere en route….
