The Sun Comes Out in Derbyshire

The sun finally emerged from the cloud just before it sank beneath the horizon and we got some better pix than on the way out.

City of the Dogs

A cold day in Buxton, the opera house open, more dogs that you can shake a stick at - collies, spaniels
and Westies mostly - and low sun.  Snap of the day was a merlin flying across the road near Hollinsclough.  Just when you need a camera!

It Wasn't Me!

Nuffink to do with me, Grandad.  I was abducted by aliens and when I asked them to change my nappy they dumped me back in this box.  I mean, look at my boat - I'm innocent, I bin framed.

Low sun and clean atmosphere after the rains.  Swans, Egyptian Geese and Harriers at RSPB Lakenheath Fen.  (The two harriers on the left are male Hens, the two on the right female Marshies.)

Sadie and Meredith last week.  Sadie was chain-watching 'Despicable Me 2', and drew a Minion in the corner of her chalkboard.
