My morning walk today was from The Maverick Bird Hide to Perterburn and back in Lower Tarras Valley a distance of 4 miles.
After much discussion on Facebook we have decided this is a Kestrel photographed at Perterburn.
This is Middlemoss in the distance
Looking up The Tarras and Little Tarras Valley
These 2 fields enclosed by Dry Stane dykes at the back of Whita have been called The Bible Fields as far as I can remember.
The Rashiel Cottage and one of the nicest places to live in the area. I have been there during the Walking Festival when we were allowed to see a Barn Owl nest and I have a couple of times seen a Barn Owl hunting in the field in front of the house.
Plenty of water in the Tarras but not running brown like the Esk was this morning
This is a very marshy area near Tarras bridge. At one time during the Moorland Education Project we had plans to turn this area into a pond but it needed planning permission and we did not have sufficient funds. Perhaps that will happen when the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve is set up.
