Sentinel Red Grouse with Rothbury in the background

Rock Cranesbill (Geranium macrorrhizum) beside River Coquet

I like a walk over the Simonside ridge and at this time of year there is plenty to see (and hear) despite the cold weather at the moment. No fewer than 4 Cuckoo's but apart from a Buzzard and Kestrel it was quiet on the bird front, Between the Heather it was white with Cottongrass and the flowers of Bilberry and Cowberry are out. I came across Rock Cranesbill growing out of a Stone wall near Rothbury on the banks of the Coquet.
