Shall we hear the ghost train of Smardalegill Viaduct?
Primroses in the wood to complement the oxslips we saw earlier. And dead-wood habitat, logpiles smothered in dog lichen whose seasonal change is something I noticed last week by Loweswater- and here it is again. In close-up, mosses are a novel reveal too.
Flowers of blue moor grass, short-stemmed at this season and close to the ground, are purplish blue. Two days later, on Scout Scar, the flowers burst open and are yellow with pollen.
