I went for a long walk on my own on Tuesday. Tam's back from her Festival and full of a head cold (don't worry, she tested for Covid and it was negative). She's been staying in her room anyway, so as not to pass it on to us. So I set off up the hill, intent on walking the route along the bridleway through the woods which we last walked in February, only this time I'd be walking it in reverse. I paused for breath on the way up, beneath a Larch tree, and found this beautiful Red Kite (tail?) feather on the ground. I had a little rucksack on with a drink and a chocolate bar in, so the feather joined them.
