Sunday 10th August 2014
Sunday means another afternoon walk for me. Today we went to Canford Heath.
The heather and the gorse were looking particularly lovely.
As we walked along there were lots of Small Heath Butterflies flitting about. Fortunately this one decided to land and stay put long enough for me to take a photo of it.
The weather might not be as hot as it was, but when the sun comes out it still feels really warm, which means the dogs were searching for water. Sadly there is very little left on the heath. Here Jez is lying panting by the dried stream bed.
At least there is one pond left on the hill as we head back to the car though, so the dogs were able to cool down there before we headed home.
A year ago today
We went to Upton Heath where I took this photo of a Grayling Butterfly.
