An Autumn Treat on Dartmoor

  The Curate has been on a training day all day and was able to re energize with a spectacular motorbike  ride  back across the Moor. As the dogs had been in all day. we decided to take advantage of the warm evening sun and we went up to the moor for a picnic supper. The colours are suddenly changing on Dartmoor as the bracken is dying back. The evening light accentuated the changes.


A couple of weeks ago we had seen three buzzards in this spot.  This time there were five birds hopping around on the ground. They were fairly unconcerned by us being there - as long as we kept our distance
