The day the sun disappeared!

Solar eclipse day in the UK today and the skies in Longsdon were reasonably clear so we got a good view. At its peak ( about 85% covered ) everywhere looked spookily grey.

I thought (although it may have been imagination) that the birds went quiet. Didn't manage to photograph it but here is the result of the pics I took.  Oh, and the gunnera is beginning to stir!
