|Ling Heather, Calluna vulgaris|

|The lone Sycamore Tree on Hadrian's Wall|
I saw some beautiful patches of harebells and yarrow, still hanging on to their flowers. The harebells looked lovely against the grey stone of the wall.

|House Martins or Swifts - they were just too quick for me to identify!|
|Roxy and the longstone|
|Vindolanda from above|
|Rosebay Willowherb with a bit of Vindolanda!|
Dogs are not allowed on the Vindolanda site - which is fair enough, so Roxy and I walked up the minor road beside it - enjoying the countryside and the first signs of autumn - berries! I also noticed a pellet or was it some scat on a stone wall. I now really have an eye for noticing this stuff - which some may find a bit odd! I am still not sure what this came from as it contained a lot of fibrous material - I still need to do some research on this one.
|Unidentified poop or pellet!|
The final walk back along the road had lots of interesting things to see such as a sapling growing out of the base of a tree and a meadow like flurry of flowers just on the side of the road. It was just a different way to enjoy a walk - stroll and you really do see more........!!
