land and sky

On one of, if not THE hottest day of the year so far, we went on a charity walk - the Red Kite Ramble in the Chilterns (in aid of Deafax working to support deaf children and young people).  It was beautiful even at over 30 degrees!

We did see some Red Kites but I was never quick enough with the camera. We grow used to them because they are always overhead in our garden
checking out the cats (luckily Red Kites are carrion eaters).

through fields....
passed flowers ...
and expanse of country ...

 We saw 'Pyramidal Orchids' and so many butterflies ...

Teasel, a colleague's dog even grew tired!

Great cause, great day.

Note: thanks to Neil Rees who did the walk too and took some of these lovely photos
