The moon by night, a clear sky and the ground freezes hard so next day walking is easier.
I heard geese in flight and a faint chirping in hawthorns and a deep-throated raven. But there were few birds to be found. The low sun dazzles if you walk south. Light snow on the distant Lake District Fells.
A beautiful day for walkers. The fells don't dazzle. There's a thin covering of snow and a slight haze so it's not a spectacular day for landscape images. The way light strikes the winter trees brings out character, highlights patterns on bark. Whitebeam berries are gone entirely and hawthorn berries shrivel- it's the hungry gap, the season when birds struggle to find food.
