A Barbury Sunset

Yesterday evening I took the dog for a walk at Barbury Castle. I parked at the western end and straight away on opening the car door I heard a Quail calling from the field to the west of the road. I walked east along the track at the bottom of the hill where there was another one calling. A few Swallows passed overhead, a Buzzard was sat on a post in the field and a couple of Yellowhammers were heard.  A Hare posed for a minute in a field alongside the racecourse. The sunset was quite impressive and didn’t give any clue to the change that was coming to the weather. On the drive back another Buzzard allowed the car to get closer than usual before flying off.
