My 8 mile loop starting before sunrise from Elmley Castle was both photographically productive and enjoyable. The almost complete cloud cover at the start steadily dissipated to become almost clear blue as the temperature rose. Not surprisingly, more people than usual were enjoying the hill today. A few hours on Bredon Hill is a far better bet than most August Bank Holiday alternatives! On top of the hill I watched a pair of Wheatears for while, the first I’ve seen here. I wonder whether they bred here or perhaps they’re on migration south from more northerly breeding grounds?
