We're back from our break away. We had a lovely time with my parents and sister to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, we had day trips to Rivington in the north Pennine Moors and Martin Mere bird reserve. Then Crafty Green Boyfriend and I went to stay in Dumfries in the south west of Scotland for a few days with trips to various nature reserves and country parks. More photos to follow in the next few days. The weather was glorious all the time and we saw loads of wildlife including otters, red squirrels and kingfishers! The woodlands in the photo are Kirconnel Flow, near Dumfries.
