The views in this area, on cold, clear wintry mornings, have been really impressive over the past few weeks. Here are a few snaps.
Meanwhile, over the winter it has become quite normal to see buzzards perched on telegraph poles. Somehow or other I managed to get close enough to one around the Ankerdine Road area. They are usually difficult birds to photograph, despite their size and prominence, but being in a car probably helped on this occasion.
