Skylark near Hawes
Took this picture a few days ago up on the tops between Hawes and Buckden and just had to share! The sound of the skylark is my favourite summer sound and luckily we have some closer to home -
New Summer Mural
Our resident artist, Jan, has painted a lovely new wall frieze for Summer! Come along and add to it by making frogs, sheep, bats, swans, flowers and even wind turbines!
A view of the garden and the moon overhead!
Went to the NT facility at Watendlath today, near Derwent Water. The road to Watendlath is superb and makes just driving there an adventure! Temperature above Watendlath was around 33°C and very little wind made walking conditions quite difficult. Dock Tarn was a real treat and there were dragonflies whizzing around everywhere!
Susan Stead led a small group along the glen looking for butterflies. Picture below shows the group homing in on a Purple hairstreak!
I was up around Kettlewell area on Wednesday and spotted this lovely little creature snuffling around the edge of a path!
