Uffington White Horse & a Friendly Robin

Returning from a family visit and baptism, we stopped off at the Uffington White Horse for a picnic. There was a convenient National Trust car park with picnic benches and panoramic views.

We didn't have the energy to walk all the way to this ancient hill figure so contented ourselves with a gentle walk in its direction, disturbing a good number of skylarks in the process.

Great views especially northwards.

The silence was occasionally broken by a passing plane from one of the nearby RAF bases (Brize Norton, Fairford, Lyneham) ...

Back at the car park, we were entertained by a friendly and inquisitive robin, the UK's favourite bird.

These birds are now so use to the presence of humans they will approach very close with little fear.
