One final walk on the Downs for the week, and the weather has changed sufficiently to allow the first ice-cream of the year when we reached the top of Ditchling Beacon. The views to the north across towards the Weald are always stunning from the top of the escarpment, especially after the long gentle ascent from the south.

As we walked we passed dozens of newborn lambs, and a few young calves. Spring is certainly on its way.
