It was such a lovely evening I thought I'd share it with you all. Wonder if you can guess where I'm standing as I took the photos. Clue later.

First one could be anywhere. But you might know this one.

I'll have the first guess - on Redan Ridge looking down onto Beaumont Hamel?

Ok John a Leffe Brun for me. A few years ago I wandered off the track into a foggy field at the New Zealand Memorial, it got foggier and I got totally lost.

We,ve all been lost in those fields! And many others.

Were opposite the Bristols Own Memorial. Give us a knock.

North Road, looking back towards Longueval.

Ok, so I'm a bit late, but I knew the answer - honest.

I walked along there in November, past the memorial and on towards Flers. As I turned right across the fields, along the hedgeline, I sat on the pylon bases watching eight deer in the field between me and the Longueval-Flers Road, as it started to go dark. It was a lovely, cold, crisp afternoon.

Not a bad life, is it?

Yes a bit of serenity on the Somme. Over the years I have been blessed with seeing deer (as your photo), moles, yes moles!, short eared owls, barn owl, egrets, tawny owl and the odd (really rare) GWF member!

No sign of any snow there John...you are luckier with the weather than we have been over here in Blighty just lately.

By the way I recognised the first post...I stayed in Rose cottage just up the road in October...

Do you serve roast Ken with mint sauce or horse-raddish?
