Just as the sun was rising i prised myself out of bed to embrace the frosty february morning for an early walk in Flass Vale nature reserve. This is just next to the Kings lodge hotel near Mobray street. This is well managed and plays host to innumerable animals that were also just waking. i came across bickering grey squirrels, with unfathomable energy bursting through the tree tops and more sleepy blackbirds hopping nonchalantly off the path as i approached. Climbing one of the side paths that rose steeply right, came across a fantastic view of Durham, resplendent in the morning light. Hence the pictures below.
Frosty grass and oak.
