Watlington Hill

At last the sun has come out and there's a chill in the air. Just the sort of day that we all love and look forward to at this time of year (we just haven't had many of them yet!) We made the most of it and went for a walk across Watlington Hill. It has the most amazing views towards Didcot and Oxford in the distance, Watlington at the bottom of the hill and then back across the Chilterns towards Aston Rowant Nature Reserve.

It's a great spot to watch the red kites as you are high up on the top of the hill and can often look down at them below you. It's quite an unusual view of these amazing birds as they glide around in the wind.

The gorse was already in flower, as were some daisies.

Bug Mad Girl found a tiny bone, probably from a mouse or vole.

Then we headed down the hill and called in on Nanny Moth. She already has aconites in flower in her garden and we saw our first daffodils flowering on the side of the road as we drove home.
