Langleeford Hope

Tempted out by the spring-like warmth and glorious sunshine today, Alison and I ventured up the Harthope Valley as far as the 'Hope', the twin peaks of Hedghope and Cheviot providing a magnificent snow-capped backdrop. A few coal tits, great tits, and blue tits were calling in the woods, and a couple of robins  sang their  melancholy little song, but generally the valley was still quiet- the birds are not so daft when it comes to telling the difference between a fine day and the arrival of Spring! One exception we did encounter, a couple of hardy Mistle Thrushes, possibly already holding territory- they are one of our earliest nesters.
