I missed out on seeing the Duke of Burgundy last year, so was filled with determination to see it this year. I wasn’t overly optimistic this morning that the weather conditions were right when I set out for the Cerne Abbas Giant but was rewarded handsomely with my first ever Duke of Burgundy (not one, but three to add to the bargain!).  What a wonderful find!
