Mugged by the hawk yet again!!

For the second week running we were dive bombed by Henry the hawk (as we now call him) at the very same bit as he gave us a hard time last week. This week he brought his girl friend along for company and we now know his reason. Apparently they're going on a hiking holiday because today he repeatedly attacked Baz trying unsuccessfully to snatch his backpack! He even left a few holes in it from his talons! If only we could video it but he arrives like a bat out of hell and doesn't hang around to be identified! He eventually settled on a tree nearby and a free trip to be attacked by him to the first person to spot him!

Another 30 odd fantastic miles today in what was to be the best weather of the day, early this morning.
