south Dartmoor - Tuesday

Yesterday an opportunity to visit the high blanket bog on the southern part of Dartmoor was rewarded with quality not quantity. Almost a bird-less day but a jack snipe, one red grouse and a female peregrine made the long walk worthwhile. However the biggest shock was finding fox moth caterpillars sunning themselves at such an altitude in February.
