5th Snow

We have had our fifth snowfall this winter.

Sleddale  looks magnificent as ever.

The Red Grouse stand out against the white.

Red Grouse (Lagopus lagopus)

The path to the Moors

passes Highcliff Nab

Then past Highcliffe Farm.

before the gate that leads onto the Moor.

The horizon looks wonderful in the light.

Captain Cook’s monument stands out as the obelisk on the distant Easby Moor.

All around is the whiteness of the snow.

Guisborough Town nestles in the snow.

And out at sea is the Redcar windfarm.

Roseberry Topping, our local landmark looks like a shark fin breaking from the snowy land.

From Claybank, it looks more menacing.

Ingleby Greenhow and Battersby Moor look fine too.

In the woods is a solitary Robin.

Robin (Erithacus rubecula)
