Blue Skies and Sharp Winds

A blue sky Saturday was just what was needed and it gave me a chance for a proper wander.This time we explored the heaths that make up the northern boundary of the Isle of Purbeck which, although beautiful in its autumn colouring, they can be quite quiet on the wildlife front.
The north wind kept all of the smaller birds deep within the scrub, but we did have a lot of fun with a couple of Dartford Warblers. No decent pictures this time, but that doesn't stop me, they are such wonderful little birds.
A good day for raptors though, with Kestrels and Buzzards showing off in the wind.
The day began with a light frost and ice on the puddles and ended up a lot warmer but with more mud.
