Haytor Heather and Gorse
In between the showers a wonderful evening walk over the tops, heather and gorse, pink purple and yellows. Haytor , Saddle, Top, Pil and Rippon Tor……

Home. Evening Walk along the River Dee to the corner of the Peninsula. Views across Liverpool Bay. Silhouette of Hilbre Islands with the Point of Ayr and Snowdonia Range in the light of the setting sun. In oceanography terms this estuary is a Region of Freshwater Influence……..water, fresh, salt, heat, tide and shelf….
Highs and Lows
Home on The Peninsula. Big moody Skies over Hilbre Island, middle eye and little eye. High tides on the River Dee marshes 4 Short eared Owls and 2 Marsh Harriers hunting. Screeches amongst the calls of curlews geese and shanks.
