There were still swathes of beautiful bluebells
These Silver Birch trees looked like they had frost topping them
Anyway, we settled for a very quiet wait, and as the last of the light was disappearing, out they came! I was so thrilled to see them even from afar. This was one thing on my "Bucket List" and now I can cross it off.
I do hope to be asked again.
I behaved very well.
I didn't laugh like a Hyena when I heard a commotion and saw my friend "S" rolling around on the floor trying to get up quietly from where she had fallen. (though I confess that I did giggle under my breath)
And I didn't scream like a banshee when we heard a rustling in the undergrowth - and we knew it wasn't one of us!!
So hopefully our guide will have been suitably impressed and will set another date.
