Breathtaking Bowland

Standard
Dunsop Bridge

Beatrix Fell

A circular walk from Dunsop Bridge
Spectacular views, abundant birdlife, wildlife, flora

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Unidentified Fungi

Drystone walls, ancient forests
Rivers rushing to the sea

Dunsop Bridge

Morecambe Bay between the hills

Farms, grouse moors
Bustling market towns, pretty villages
Old quarries, limekilns, fascinating history

Forest of Bowland
Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

On this glorious walk
I stopped to peep into a derelict barn
and disturbed two barn owls
Silently they flew
between the beams and settled
I took a quick snapshot and left

A breathtaking moment

  1. Oh fab. Glad you enjoyed it. I am envious of the Barn owls and I think the fungi is a Blue Roundhead. I have never seen one myself but I have seen a couple recently on other peoples instagram feeds and blogs. X

  2. Could be something else as looking at your picture, the head is not very round. Awesome that you have seen Hen Harriers. And Barn Owls are so magical. X
