Chicken Licken said “The sky has fallen in”

Friday, May 6th, 2011

A dull day, so we head over to Linford for our walk and the skies literally close in over the top of us.

Viewing it from a different angle the illusion is even more striking

But up there, it still looks like the sky is falling in – Chicken Licken is going home!
