First day of winter

Another morning with brilliant skies. The first day of winter and the countdown to Christmas. One of my favourites route onto Great Ayton Moor is up  Howden Gill through Slacks Wood and nearing the crest of the escarpment a kestrel making the most of the up-draught glided just above my head. I could almost stroke its feathers. Unfortunately my reaction was too slow to get a closer shot but the encounter made my day.
