A Damp Amble

Sunday, January 28th 2018

In the dull, brown, grey colours of winter anything different easily catches your eye.  Walking across a bridge along Risedale Beck something yellowish stood out.  Closer inspection found another Primrose in flower, although looking a little worse for wear after all the 'weather' it has withstood.

Gorse is coming into flower across the reserve, bright yellow against the dark green modified leaves.

Sheltered away, off the path, is a log upon which the Scarlet Elfcup grows.  A look and it is beginning to show itself.

Although not colourful, it was a pleasure to see an Early Moth on the front of the Field Centre, the first for a considerable time.

Continuing the amble around the reserve, a colourful lichen, to be found on many of the stones along the access road, was photographed.

 Water droplets can hang onto the smallest of plants and defy gravity.
