It’s been a gorgeous sunny day today ( Sunday) so we decided to take Hugo for his first walk up Pendle Hill. We parked the car near the Ski slope and Wellsprings Spanish & Mexican restaurant at the ‘Nick O Pendle’ and followed the footpath onto the rugged moorland. The sun was shining but it was very blustery up there , ideal for model aeroplane enthusiasts and paragliders .
We saw quite a bit of wildlife including kestrel, sky larks, Gulls, Dipper ( in the brook), Bees, Cabbage white butterflies and a tiny green moth/butterfly and plant life including the berries above, cotton bud grass, bracken, rushes and moss. Unfortunately I didn’t manage many photos of the birds or insects. 😦 But I did snap this skylark ( I think? ) in flight.
The music of the skylark accompanied us for most of our walk and they could often be seen hovering in flight. It took me ages to get a picture of one ….so I was pretty pleased when i did. 🙂 By the time we got back to the car, I was in dire need of a Hot Chocolate. It was a bit chilly up that hill!
Hope you enjoyed the sunshine too. X
