Wanny line

Yesterday I went for an evening stroll along the Wanny (Wansbeck) line through the common and onto footpaths to the west of the A1. It was a beautiful warm and sunny evening with plenty of flora and fauna but nothing unusual. I was amazed at the number of Ringlets still on the wing at this hour, 50+ and a dozen or so Meadow browns. The pictures are the bridge over the old line near the common, a Ringlet and Yorkshire fog grass in the evening sunshine, a young Swallow sitting on the fence waiting to be fed, Bittersweet, underside of Broad buckler fern, another Ringlet and Scentless mayweed at the edge of a Barley field.

Hi Abbey, sounds like a nice walk. Baby swallows rate high on my cuteness list. What a great name, Yorshire fog grass.
