Tarn the Patterdale Terrier looks down from the summit of the Old Man of Coniston in the English Lake District National Park during a patrol with her Ranger friend.It had been a 2 hour climb and she was ready for elevenses.
This was 17th June 2013.I was looking back to March 2011 with the shot below in which I commented that I’d seen my first Ring Ouzel of the year.It must be a good spot for these birds as I got my first of 2013 on the day I took this photo.I also noticed that March seems to have better weather than June.

    And hallelujah, etc. No Tarnish on her, the little sprite. The Ouzels see you coming, that’s evident, lucky de-ranger that you are. Great shot of Her Nibs, of course, & the scenery ain’t bad either.
