Climb to summit of Tor Hill....



Probably the main species to add colour to any degree was that common Moss again Polytrichum piliferum, both male and female (as shown in photos). There was a party of about 8 Meadow Pipits, and it was unclear to make out whether they where actually passing through or birds back on territory. An odd Pied Wagtail and a Green Woodpecker "yaffling" from over Musbury...I found some recent feathers on the summit of Tor and on getting them home and checking they had come from a Woodcock...
