Out and About

Sunday, June 23rd 2019

Over the last few days the weather has been warm and so the invertebrates have been more visible.  A damselfly was sitting on a leaf and stayed there for a photograph.

Some way from the ponds, up the middle moor path, this Broad Bodied Chaser landed on a convenient piece of vegetation.

A Four Spotted Chaser was hiding away in the grass.

Across the moor the Germander Speedwell is in flower forming blue carpets.

After the rain the Cotton Grass looked very sorry for itself and hopes of seeing the white fluffy tops faded, but nature does have a way of recovering and soon the tiny seeds were being carried away on the gentle breeze.

 Checking on the ponies I spotted Taurus enjoying some food, unfortunately it was not Gorse or Willow or Rush but a change of diet - Dog Daisies!
