Looking Back

Sunday, January 15th 2017

No ideas came to mind for the blog today, so I decided to look at earlier years, and reached 2009, New Year's Day Walk to be exact.  It was a little frosty.  This Wild Carrot seed head, minus most of its seeds was covered in frost.

As was the Gorse on the moor.

The Highlanders were on the moor at this time and we took them some food.  I seem to recollect that I was sent through the gate to feed them, with a bucket in my hand, full of cattle cake.  They seemed to know the bucket and came rather quickly.  I spread the cake and made a very hasty retreat!  It was not often that we could photograph all four together, but food made the difference.

Our walk took in the newly completed wetland.  It has changed since its creation.

However some things on the reserve do not change.  Yesterday a tree had fallen over the tank tracks and armed with a saw with a new blade, Sandra, Brian and Sophie made it safe - thank you.
