'You must have dozens of sketches draw from cafés!' says the waitress, 'Do you draw everywhere you go?'
'Well I must have half a dozen sketches now just done from here - we always stop here on our way to the Lake District.'
There's a fly past as I'm sketching this view from the café at Country Harvest near Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales: a large military transport turns above the building and rumbles off low over the countryside.
Swallows fly just above ground level over the pasture.
As we continue on our journey, driving by the foot of Giggleswick Scar
an enormous bird of prey appears above the roadside trees and circles
over the road, not much higher than the treetops. As we drive beneath
it we notice its white head - it's a bald eagle!
