Day 21 – view a landscape

On a clear day from my house I can see across to Brize Norton, which is 10 miles, in a straight line, through open fields, patches of woodland, farmland and iconic places such as Harrowdown Hill.

Hares and deers roam the landscape and lapwings, red kites and rooks fill the skies. Many geese pass over head on route to Farmoor reservoir and on a still day I can hear the roaring sound of the weir on the River Thames.

Ravens and Peregrine Falcons occasionally rest on the pylons that cut across the land.

Today is the Summer solstice, the longest day of the year and at 33 degrees it has been the hottest day this year so far.
