The walk from the lighthouse to the White Cliffs car park is one of the most stunning in the area. The cliffs are very high and are perhaps the most iconic landmark in the country. Today the wind, about 14 mph SSW was surprisingly cold. I seem to remember learning about Warm, wet.westerly winds in winter. It was neither wet or warm this afternoon.

Cold dry Westerly Wind!
Most of the time I spend out and about in the area is on the Bockhill side of the bay. This is not because the area of South Foreland Valley and Langdon Cliffs is uninteresting but mainly because the area is more accessible from the house and the layout makes it easier to work.
As I walked along the deep resonant honk floated up and alerted me a minute or so later two Ravens drifted past. It is amazing that they are now a familiar part of the cliff walk experience,consdering they have only been back in Kent for around 9 years after an 110 year absence.
