Hen Harrier going over Haslingden Moor today.



Plenty of frog spawn showing today not far from and to the back of Grane Information Centre, Some Meadow Pipits back on territories along with Skylark on the section of Haslingden Moor towards Doles. Close ups of Large female Hen Harrier being haressed by a single crow whilst it slowly made way West to East along the edge of the Moor. Found a new fern and moss (see photo), We do think the fern is probably Common Polypody (Polypodium vulgare) Also checked out at Doles and there are still a few of the old Haslingden bricks on view, two separate designs - one shown here.
