Following Siwe’s visit at lunchtime I decided to disappear for and hour or so to Ferring Rife. It turned into a lovely afternoon and the blackberries were big, juicy delicious ones by the meadow. Plenty of interesting plants and critters and well worth visiting again.

In this little hollow there were dozens of snail shells left from a thrush's banquet.
