Lockdown day 12, Jan 17th, three arrows

Got out to the Kirby trail head for sunrise this morning.

On the footpath from Kirkby up towards the wain stones at Clay Bank there are lots of very old stones marking the trail, mostly upright but this one was flat and set to the side of the path, inscribed with an arrow pretty much exactly the size and shape of a grouse track. It also looks like the broad arrow symbol that signifies crown property.

A brave new sprig of heather finding space in the snow. The tier drop shape shows the dominant wind direction which (I think) is blowing in from the West.
