The cottages are obscured by the trees on the right of this image the gardens actually lead right down to the river bank.
The Red Kite is quite a rare bird in the U.K. but every year we normally spot a couple soaring high over the hillsides.
The RAF usually pay us a visit early in the mornings flying
their jets at low level down the vallies. Quite an impressive sight but they
are a bit LOUD !
Higher up the river there are a series of dams. The reservoirs supply the Birmingham area of the U.K. with fresh water. It's amazing to see how the water levels have dropped over the years !
This is not one of our cottages but I thought it made a nice shot.
Another image taken further down the river below the dams.
