A day out in the Lake District (Part 3 Ash Landing)

On our way to Hill Top we had noticed a sign saying Ash Landing Nature Reserve. We decided to explore it on our way back. It is a National Trust property with a number of different habitats. There are signs with pictures of various species to look out for and additional information.

I noticed some flowers on an oak tree and stopped to take a photo. There was a rustling noise in the undergrowth. I waited quietly and was delighted to see a red squirrel. It ran across the path and disappeared. I continued along the path, heard another noise and spotted (presumably) the same red squirrel as it bounded under a fence and up the side of a field.

There was plenty of bird song, but the birds were hard to spot. I saw a robin!
