HOTHFIELD









The Egret departing .There is some discussion as to whether it's a little one or a big White one.The large one has been seen in the area,so that lends some credence.

The Stour river running through its flood plain

D'Oyly Carte's brother Orsen,they were 2 abreast when I overtook them.
This lovely Gatehouse was made of gingerbread and chocolate.

I shall have to look in my Observer's Book of English Churches to fathom this.



These pictures above I took,which is why they are so good.they are Hothfield church and an interesting gravestone,(IWGC)from an unusual regiment.Also,the turret that might also be a buttress?The gargoyles,if that is what they are,and the door with the alcove for holy water?
All these things I will have to investigate.
We RV'd at the church and did an anti-clockwise (widdershins)circular walk that intercepted the Stour Valley Walk and the Greensand way.
It was about 6 or 7 miles and it was at times,windy,rainy,but muddy most of the time.Birds;-Buzzard,long tailed tits,robin,egret(s)
Heron,little brown thing near a stream .

6 chaps 6 miles

  1. That Egret looks bigger than 'normal' - any shots that show it's bill colour??? Could...just possibly be a Great White?! I'm off to China tomorrow so send them through to me after 27th Feb otherwise I'll get all clogged up!
