Bedlam Bottom

Walk from Ellisfield via the delightfully named Bedlam Bottom, near (would you believe) Farleigh Wallop.  An 8 mile varied walk with plenty of interest, including dung beetles, short-tailed voles and a run away straw bail.

Didn’t meet, see or hear a single person all day….at one point we thought there must be something going on that we didn’t know about.  Doesn’t matter that everyone else wasn’t out enjoying the sunshine and fresh air….all the more for us.  Picked over 1kg of blackberries on the way back which will soon disappear.

First crop of runner beans for dinner….yum!  and more courgettes (and I have already seen another 3 on there which will need eating tomorrow…not complaining, but if I turn into a courgette!!)

Farmer Palmer...

Anything hiding in the wood pile?

Phew...think I'll just have a quick sit down in the shade...

Glorious rolling fields that have just been harvested

The one that got away....."humm....where did you come from"?

Great texture on this water trough

'Preston Oak Hills' Large old copse full of twisted oak trees.

Dung Beetle, scuttling away with a large lump of fresh dung to roll.

Short Tailed Vole (my my...what big fingers you have!!)

A blackberry bonanza. Most blackberry are not quite ripe, but these were on the edge of a large south facing field.
