Cotswolds walk - Day 1

8 miles or so, Weston-sub-Edge to Ebrington

The first Day of our 3-day walk southish along the Cotswolds started with a climb up Dovers Hill from Weston-sub-Edge.  There are a couple of paths up Dover's Hill, but our first choice ended at a cow filled field that we were reluctant to cross. Doubling back, we escaped the cows and also saw this amazing humming bird hawk moth feeding on a buddlija bush.

It's a bit blurry as it was moving so fast
