  1. Lovely photos Amanda - it looks a really great walk. The view towards Armscliffe Crag is stunning :) I haven't seen any skippers yet this year - must try harder!! The gall on hawthorn looks interesting - I must look out for galls more too!

  2. Your view is wonderful and I like the variety of things that you see and notice. Wish more people were aware of the little things around them! Looks like a Large Skipper (woohoo). Great set of photos. :-)

  3. I love the vista across to the rocks. You do get some quite different moth species up there to me down here. Never seen a chimney sweeper before- can't wait for the day you get a moth box and start regular trapping and recording :-)

    1. Thanks CT, the Chimney moth is a beautiful little moth, this one looks a bit pale in the sun, think you could get them as they like Chalky land as well. A proper moth trap is going on my Christmas list for next summer.

  5. No idea what that amazing hawthorn gall is Amanda - never seen anything like it. Suspect it might be caused by a fungus.
