Grey, wet and windy today with storms forecast. It would be sensible to stay in or at least find somewhere sheltered. Not a bit of it.
White Sheet Down can be described as many things but sheltered isn't one of them!
Right on the top of the downs are some nice bronze age barrows. It was also surprisingly busy. Lots of men flying their toy aeroplanes.
I admit I failed to see the attraction. By now I was wishing I'd thought to bring hat scarf and gloves!
One advantage of being so high ( and blown about) was that you can look down. And look down we did, spotting this Kestrel looking for his lunch. He was quite a way away and I wished I brought the long lens.
This is right on the limits of my general purpose lens so it's a bit pixellated.
This was a very short walk and I was glad to head back to the shelter of the car. On the way down though I had to stop an admire these.
A nice crop of dainty little Fairy Ink caps.
So insubstantial that they were swaying in the breeze even in their sheltered location.
