Today it was bright and sunny so I chose to do a longish walk of around 12 kilometres to Lowthorpe.
Out of the village
Down the back lane.
Off onto the track
All very overgrown since Spring. Lots of tall grass and hedgerow plants. All buzzing with flies, hoverflies, gnats and midges – food for birds and their young.
Along the back lane, it was the time for dog-rose in the hedgerows and poppies in the fields.
The trees were now fully clothed in their Summer finery.
This house looks grand with its exact dimensions and precision.
Swallows on the wires and butterflies on the flowers.
Into the village of Lowthorpe.
Back out along the lane back to Nafferton.
More butterflies; more trees.
Two chaffinches singing on the wires
And home again! Sorely in need of a cup of tea!! A great walk on a superb sunny day!
