Chicory...the above shots taken at Pegswood moor
Armstrong bridge and Cragside house
Yeaterday I had a look around Pegswood moor. The only bird of note was a single Common Sandpiper. The thin poor soil has a lot of plants clinging to it like Chicory, knapweed, Ladys bedstraw and Meadow vetchling. The most attractive plant was probably Hoary plantain. Today we had a picnic at Cragside. Plenty of plants up here such as Prickly heath, Common and Bell heather in flower and Amphibious bistort on the lakes. Not many birds seen and no Crossbills heard. Fungi was quite plentiful around here.
