The Isle of Purbeck takes some beating when the skies are clear and frost covers the ground. The paths become easier to walk as the mud freezes, at least for a little while, and the cold air feels good to breath. Walking the coast path is a must for me whatever the weather but on these cold, clear days our cliffs seem to shine.
Along the cliffs Jackdaws and Pigeons joined the gulls and Guillemots but it was a very friendly, and extremely vocal, Robin that won the best looking bird award.
On an outcrop, above the long closed path to an old quarry, was a single Adder taking in the warmth of the winter Sun.
