More hillside art

Following on from the surprisingly successful post about White Horses in England, here are some other animal figures.

The Whitehawk Hawk, near Brighton in East Sussex, (see on Google maps).

Whipsnade Lion, close to Whipsnade zoo (see on Google maps).

And now two figures from areas where the geology is not based on chalk.  The flora have been cleared away to reveal quartz-like rock near Strichen in Aberdeenshire.

This is the only 'white horse' in Scotland (see on Google maps)

 and this animal is a little more typically Scottish (see on Google maps).

Next time - some other shapes in the chalk.

What a great collection :)
Maybe you can start a new tab and ask people to submit what they find too?
