Old Telephone Box With Message

no cash no problem

Telephone Box long out of use. “No Cash, No Problem”. This has not been my experience of life as a whole.

Barn Door

barndoor

Can’t get into this old building on this visit, as there is it closed off, so poked the camera through a space between the upper and lower door on the farmyard side, in order to take a picture of this big door on the far side of the barn. In the barn are thin eye-slits in the thick stone walls, so one can see out on to the Liddel Valley, where you can hear a sheep baa-ing from across the valley. In the past I knew someone who lived in a room above the main body of this barn.  Last time I was in the barn itself I climbed the stairs to this room, and got deeper and deeper into barn owl droppings, and the owl itself came flying out of the rafters.

Heron in the Leet 3

aheron28

I think this was a young heron, just learning to catch small fry from the river, by the small weir on Leet Water.  It seemed less aware of people than usual with herons, and so I stood on the bridge and photographed it from above for several minutes, while it stalked about, obviously on the qui vive for morsels; though the most it seemed to get were insects and maybe a tiny fish.
