A walk in the woods.

We took a nice walk in Cowleaze Woods after church today – beautiful day for it, and really feeling the benefits for it now.

We saw the memorial to the plane that crashed in the woods back in March 1944 – having being involved together with 1,000 other planes in a bombing campaing on Nuremberg, bright moonlight exposed the planes to enemy fire. This plane made it several hundred miles, almost delivering her crew home, before crash landing in these woods.

We also enjoyed watching the Red Kites soaring above the hill – expending so little energy as they rode the ridge thermal. The Red Kite always reminds me of home, as this graceful bird is used as the county emblem for Powys.
