CLEEVE CLOUD GOLF CLUB

While my wife was looking after our gandson yesterday in Cheltenham,i took the chance to walk up to Cleeve Hill. The highest point on the Cotswolds overlooking Cheltenham racecourse. It was windy and very cold,a good day for a walk.This is a view towards the golf club.
You just see the racecourse in the middle of this photo.

CANNOP POND

There is no better place in the forest to rest for a while, than on this seat at Cannop.The clumps of mud you can see are the result of the wild boar digging.

REDWING



As i am not an expert in bird recognition, i had to consult my "I SPY" book of birds and the nearest to the photo said REDWING.  Pity about the twig getting in the way, i did move but when i raised the camera................it was GONE.

WITCH ( pun intended) VANE WOULD YOU HAVE ?

I spotted this vane yesterday,and with halloween the next day i thought how apt. Over a glass or two of red wine last night i thought what made the person who lives in this house, go to the expense of having it made and what does it say about them ? Perhaps she IS A WITCH!!!!!
My question to you if your reading this post is. What would you have on your weather vane if you had one made and why ?
Me....I would have a large German Shepherd dog in memory of my old dog "Lewis"
