I was awake early this morning and sad muppet that I am I was downloading books before 5am!! More of what they are in a future blog!!
I decided to set off and get through the m25 early, I also got to see Red Kites over the M40. I was nice and early and so I thought a stroll through Bourton on the Water would be worthwhile, normally its packed with tourists but when I strolled through I had it to myself!
But there were observers.....
Adults look on!
and a Blackbird
And on to the National Trusts Coughton Court. It is the home of the Throckmorton's they were Roman Catholic recalcitrants (think that's the word). Which explains why there is an CofE and RC church in the grounds. I had Corgette and Corriander soup for my lunch.
I indulged in a cup of tea and a lump of chockie cake :D
Bird highlights - Nuthatch, Swallow, Grey Wagtail, Buzzard and Red Kite.
