The golf course was closed because of the (dusting of) snow and the (quite) low temperatures, so a walk across the tundrous wastes was quieter than usual.
Reading a blog from another place, about Juniper bushes on the North Downs, I wondered if there were any near here. Sure enough, an area at the top of the course yielded up a patch of about 40 - whether natural or planted I don't know.
Given the exposed position it's not surprising that they are low-growing specimens and not the proud erect types that may be seen elsewhere.
Nearby the large cliff fall could be seen, with more planks of wood being washed up, due to some quirk of the wind and tide.
On the bird front there was little around - a couple of skylarks over the stubble and a few gannets and auks flying over sea.
In the garden there has been an arrival of greenfinches and great tits, and I got a shot of a Treecreeper at work.
